Why do e-mail messages I send out to people bounce back to me?
Posted by Admin Ad on 15 July 2005 08:51 AM
There are many reasons this can happen, but e-mail "bounces" back to the sender usually under 3 conditions :
 
Condition 1:
 
The domain of the recipient's e-mail address does not exist.
 
Condition 2:
 
The e-mail address of the recipient no longer exists.
 
Condition 3: 
 
The SMTP server of the recipient's domain was not reachable for a long period of time.
 
 By "bouncing", your original e-mail message comes back into your Inbox along with a standard error message produced by the SMTP server. This error message should give you a good indication of the problem.
