mailer daemon problem

Specs: Windows Vista
Hi, Just wondered if anyone can explain this: I had an email from this morning telling me an email I sent last night didn't reach the sender. I have sent many emails to this person in the past as they are a friend of mine & had no problems. My question is: I use a hotmail account, my friend has a btinternet acount so where does yahoo fit in to the mix? The only explanation I can think of apart from it being spam is that I sent the email last night (chirstmas day) so the servers may have been overloaded. Not sure if that is possible or not. Any help would be great. Best regards.

Mailer daemon simply meant the message was bounced. The causes for bounced mail is cited in THIS link. Similarily, if you mail a letter through the U.S. Post Office and the delivery address is wrong or unknown, the letter will be returned to you.

Thanks for your quick response. The email address that I sent to is 100% correct. The error that mailer daemon gave me was: connectWithTimeout failed []: Connection refused

Can anyone explain what this is trying to say please?

Nothing to worry about; as you said, there was likely an overload, and a glitch routing your email occurred. Just resend the email. These problems occur occasionally. (Thanks to this notification, at least you won't think that a lack of a reply to your email is the cold shoulder!) :o)
