The returned email should give reasons (possibly in an attachment).

Well like the user said above. The email that bounces back will give you an error code and and reason why it wasn't deliverable. I would post that here or perhaps forward the email message header to your provider.

This is the error message we received. It listed about 20 yahoo addresses to which this message was not delivered. I'm sure all those computers were not turned off at the same time.


This Message was undeliverable due to the following reason:

Your message was not delivered because the destination computer was
not reachable within the allowed queue period. The amount of time
a message is queued before it is returned depends on local configura-
tion parameters.

Most likely there is a network problem that prevented delivery, but
it is also possible that the computer is turned off, or does not
have a mail system running right now.

Your message was not delivered within 1 days and 0 hours.
Host yahoo.com is not responding.

Whatever they say it looks like a problem with Yahoo customers. Sometimes servers put on a global ban if there is a hacker in their midst. It usually starts working again eventually but might take a week or two.

Your server should be able to wrinkle this out if you send the message to them in an attachment - if they are prepared to get off their backsides.

Host yahoo.com is not responding.

That tells you all you need to know. It is Yahoo's problem, probably for the reasons stated by Derek.

When servers initiate a "global block" due to a suspected hacker they obviously start getting flak from all the innocent customers. This prompts partial unblocking and eventually only the hacker remains blocked.

So, with a bit of luck normal service will eventually return (unless you are trying to email the actual hacker LOL).
