I changed the Nameservers, etc... the site is up, all good.  But, the old email accounts aren't working. What do I need to change to get the existing email account(s) back up and running?
Thanks.

Where is the email hosted? You will need to get the MX records from the email host and update them in the advanced DNS

Plesk/Odin --  I have the mx record(s) -- I'm not sure exactly how to enter the information into the Advanced DNS at Homestead.

Under the domains tab, each domain should show and Advanced DNS settings option. You can select the domain in question and edit those records. You would replace the existing ones with the ones you were given. You can also post what they gave you and we can update them for you.

I have updated the mail records per these DNS settings. It will take some propagation time.
