Changes to PN MX records - 30/11/11

Evening folks,
Quick heads up about this work. That's taking place tomorrow morning.
[quote author="Bob Pullen"]Planned Email/DNS Maintenance - Wednesday 30th November 10.00am-11.00am

When's this work happening?
Tomorrow morning, starting at 10am.
What does it affect?
The DNS records for customers' email.
How long will it take?
About ten minutes, however the changes may take 24-48 hours to come into effect.
What does the work involve?
We will be changing the mail exchange (MX) records for the email service we provide.
Am I likely to notice the work?
Possibly. If you're familiar with DNS/MX records then you might notice that the MX records for your email address changes to 'mx.avasin.plus.net'. This is purely aesthetic and will have no bearing on the way in which your email is delivered.
Is there anything else I need to know?
This is one of the final stages of the work to move customer email to a new anti-spam platform - http://community.plus.net/blog/2011/10/04/plusnet-look-to-the-clouds-for-email-security-solution/
Kind regards,

This will result in the MX records for anybody using Plusnet for email changing from either:
10 mx-trial.core.plus.net.
20 mx-trial.last.plus.net.

Or:
10 mx-ironport.core.plus.net.
20 mx-ironport.last.plus.net.

To:
10 mx.avasin.plus.net
