How can I change a domain name in SurgeMail?

  1. Stop Surgemail
  2. Make a backup of nwauth.* and surgemail.ini
  3. If using nwauth, then Run ./nwauth -rename old.domain.name new.domain.name
  4. If not using nwauth change the domain names in your database!
  5. Edit surgemail.ini and change the vdomain name=”OLD.DOMAIN.NAME” TO “NEW.DOMAIN.NAME”
  6. And add ‘host_alias “old.domain.name” if desired.
  7. Generally you shouldn’t change/update mailbox_path unless you plan on renaming the physical folder to match.
