Hi,

I have recently changed the name servers away from my domain registrar (123-reg) to my webhost, and then pointed the MX-records back to them in order to still use their free email forwarding (which goes to an external email account). This worked for about a week, but then 123-reg apparently disabled the forwarding without warning (I noticed this only weeks later and lost emails through this).

Does anybody know a domain registrar (with reasonably cheap prices) where I would be able to have forwarding without having their name servers in the DNS? (I contatced already Namecheap (they are in the US but doing UK domains as well) and they let me know that this wouldn't work with them either).
Alternatively, could I do this with Zone Edit?

To use ZoneEdit for mail forwarding, you'll need to use their nameservers. However you can of course point everything else (other than mail) to other servers ie you have full access to the DNS records.

Have you considered asking your host if they can set up a mail forward for you on their servers?
