Okay that exactly what I needed.
DNS A record for mail.ehowe.com will stay the same and I will change the
A record for ehowe.com to the new IP for the webserver.
Definitely going to try the letsencrypt method vs. re-issuing my current
certificate. Do I need to do anything there or will letsencrypt
overwrite my current certificate?
Then after I do all this, I will have to let everyone know to change
their SMTP, IMAP and POP hostname to mail.ehowe.com instead of their
current value ehowe.com correct?
Thanks so much!
