Thanks. Can you happen to tell me whether Magento uses PHP mail or SMTP authentication, and if SMTP where the server details go ? All I could find was a spot saying 'Windows only' but my server is Linux.

comment dns routing MX record
Also I think you are saying about copying the current zone-definition and leaving the MX untouched and adjusting the records pertaining to the website. But it seems easier to me to just use the DNS that cpanel gives me when i set up the new hosting account; and then manually change the single MX value to point to the old office server, because MX is the only thing that I need that is non standard ( from what cpanel will setup for me)

comment dns routing MX record
Sorry, when I said "change the domains nameservers to point to the new hosting account" I was referring to what i think you mean by "DNS-servers which serve the domain" eg ns1.domain.com ns2.domain.com ns3.domain.com. ; and yes I AM changing these, so that everything pertaining to the domain should now point to the new hosting account, including mail.domain.com. Then I would be changing the MX record in the new hosting's zone to point mail back to the original office server where the email resides.

Super Users ? I wouldn't have thought so. This is a webmaster question as far as I am concerned, though if anyone wants to move it I wont argue.
