    Configure incoming connectors (will probably be by default or by wizard) then change your MX records to point to your public IP. Keep the POP3 connector running until you are sure nothing more is coming in on it.

    Should be zero downtime / loss of email

      Thanks for the replay.
      I want to use the same email format that was used in the pop3 email hosting.
      is it possible?

        You mean the same addresses? -- that should already be configured
