Hi and welcome to the list.

UK2 have recently-ish changed their policy on "catch-all" email
addresses. Unless you've paid them extra to continue the catch-all
feature, or you have specifically set up all your mail aliases to
individually be forwarded, then you get your mail silently dropped.

Try sending some mail to yourself as a test and see whether it gets
through and/or what the headers show.

Aside: I used to have accounts with UK2. After exchanging an email or
two with their sales people, I then moved over to:

Despite promises otherwise, UK2 immediately dropped their hosting for my
ml1 domain even though I am still paid up with them for a few months yet!

Good luck,
