123-reg.co.uk having serious problems today…

Anybody relying on 123-reg.co.uk to do email forwarding for them might well have lost all the email sent to them this morning (and with no bounce backs to warn the senders), so if you were expecting an email it might be worth checking whether it was sent or not.

We discovered this after having put a site live only to find that in final handover testing none of the forms got through anymore. Finally we tracked it down to 123-reg.co.uk having dropped ALL mx records for the domain (i.e. it just didn’t offer email to anybody trying to send to the domain). We watched whilst they suddenly came back (still not working), then moved to other servers (bouncing all email) and then finally sprung into life again. Strangely they didn’t count email not working at all as worthy of mentioning on their ‘current status’ page. We shall reconsider recommending them for domain names in the future…
