My sister foolishly let her domain expire with directnic.com and her website disappeared. She renewed it immediately and I reset the nameservers for her. Her website came back immediately at my location and within a few hours later at her location.
That was two days ago!! Unfortunately she cannot receive email any more (at her and my location). The email settings are definitely correct at our ends. We could access old messages with her webhost (hostingireland.com). They said that there is nothing wrong with the hosting and that emails are not coming through to them.
I can see no email settings that need to be changed at directnic and I have created a support ticket with them.
So fellow experts, what's your experience of this type of situation.
Surely nameserver changes should work simultaneously on HTTP and EMAIL
