Need to access Cpanel from host we are about to cancel

Can I make access to the CPanel from an older host with a soon to expire without having to contact their tech support (which is not responsive)?

We’ve got the website for up at new host ->Siteground.

But the emails are still with the old host → Horizn Cumulus. This account is due to expire soon and I want to see if I can access the server to see about downloading the emails there rather than setting her up with an email app and using 2 IMAP settings, one with old server, and one with new server - if I can help it.

I have the IP address for the old server, obviously since the MX records are still pointed to the old.

I just created a ‘cpanel’ A record to the old IP address, but realize this might mess things up.

I’ve not had good success with the old host tech support so am asking for informed opinions here, if anyone wants to offer…


Hi, this isn’t a Cloudflare issue. There are way better places to ask for advice on this.
