Hmm, yeah - I've just noticed that too. They were up a bit earlier and I was only talking to Rob in Tech Support at about 17:30 today.
The whole lot down!?!? That's pretty bad news. I'm pretty sure I've seen somewhere that says they've got a US-Based mirror site. I hope it's nothing too major!!

A friend of mine who also uses them says that Option 3 on their helpline number ( 0870 165 1416 ) - Says that they have got a major network problem.
At least we know now.

I only use them for e-mail , used them for just over 12mths without any major issues, but it is a bit unusual that the webmail login pages are also down along with the sister site ukservers.net , maybe some sort of Internet fault such as a fibre break
