Delayed emails from 123-REG forwarder

I read Ravenstar sticky note and he advises not to join threads with a problem but add a new one even if it appears a duplicate, so here it is.

For some weeks now I have been experiencing an unacceptable number of incoming emails that have been significantly delayed.  I attach details of one with my email details removed.
This message was created automatically by mail delivery software.

A message that you sent has not yet been delivered to one or more of its
recipients after more than 48 hours on the queue on
The message identifier is:     1bi0On-0004Z6-P7
The subject of the message is: does this work
The date of the message is:    Thu, 08 Sep 2016 14:33:22 +0000
The address to which the message has not yet been delivered is:
    (generated from
    Delay reason: SMTP error from remote mail server after initial connection:
    host []:

No action is required on your part. Delivery attempts will continue for
some time, and this warning may be repeated at intervals if the message
remains undelivered. Eventually the mail delivery software will give up,
and when that happens, the message will be returned to you.
I use 123-REG as domain manager and email name translator and forwarder to my blueyonder account.  There appear plenty of other people on the board with similar issues.

Hi gfinlay,

Really sorry about this, though as you say a number of these issues are being reported of late.

I'll need to inspect the full, unedited header to determine the cause and I should then be able to escalate this for you. Please reply to my PM (purple envelope icon, top right of page) with the requested information and I'll get this matter progressed.

Thank you Smiley Happy
