Did this too. Quite a bit more of a hassle.
You create the new accounts and set the passwords. The account
names will very likely all be different than your old provider
since the on-rev system sets the user name.
So, for example, I went from
username 'selander' at pop account pop.pba-net.com, to
username 'selander+pba-net.com' (on-rev's choice) at mail.pba-net.com
Also, I had some trouble using smtp.pba-net.com; at Heather's
advice I use 'mail.freyr.on-rev.com' -- which works well.
Then I had to go through all 32 computers at the company,
resetting everyone's mail account username and smpt server,
sending test emails, etc. I went in at midnight on a Saturday to
do this, to lessen the chances of incoming emails getting lost
during the hour or two it took to do all this. (I figure only
spam is coming in that time of day :-)
I did all this after re-directing the DNS to on-rev's servers on
my Go-Daddy account.
If your current host also uses the 'user+domain.com' pattern, the
switch would be easier. You'll still have to fix the smtp server
on everyone's computer.
