I am in the process of taking over a local societies website. All the email addresses are stored on the webmail system of the site and according to the group it is for, there are no backups!
The previous designer wants to close down the old site, deleting all the data . He is not being very helpful about it either.
I am by no means an expert, just someone who has done a few charity sites for friends and enjoy doing them.
I was hoping that I would be able to just take over from the last admin and transfer the domain and hosting service into my name, but it seems not.
I am keeping with the same hosting service, as they seem to say that they can transfer the contacts over to me, although they seem a bit vague about it. Is there a way to copy all the addresses (about 300) so that as a last resort they could be re-input?
Thanks for any advice.
