Ok, so like a completely unprepared person, I let my hosting lapse. My hosting was with my registrar. I figured "OK, no big deal, I'll just keep it off until I get paid". Well, about a week later (as a matter of fact, on pay day), I went to renew and my stuff was gone. File content was no big deal; I always work locally and upload commits (DreamWeaver sites). I purchased hosting again.
However, one big issue was my DNS records. Specifically for my email.
You see, I had put my domains on the MS Live Domains, back in 2011, prior to them taking it down in 2014. I cannot administer, but I figured "Who needs to? Got everything I need set up the way I need it."
Well, once my DNS records were gone, and specifically the MX and TXT records that route my mail, I figured I was up the creek. My emails stopped receiving. I could still log in to https://outlook.com with my account and send emails, but not receive.
Tried to log in at https://domain.live.com and it just keeps taking me back to login. I thought surely I could retrieve the MX records, but apparently not. Also, they're unique, so you cannot use something general.
So how do you find out your MX records on a service that they no longer allow administration of and you really cannot justify the expense of moving to Office365?
