    Email "Failed Delivery" message 

     

    When you get mail from a "MAILER-DAEMON" or a "Mail Delivery Subsystem" with a subject similar to "Failed Delivery," this means that a message you sent was undeliverable and has been bounced back to you. These messages are produced automatically and usually include a reason for the delivery failure. 

     

    Failed or "bounced" messages normally consist of two parts: 

    The reason for the bounce 

    Your original message. 

    Example failure notice 

    Hi. This is the qmail-send program at yahoo.com. 

    I'm afraid I wasn't able to deliver your message to the following addresses. 

    This is a permanent error; I've given up. Sorry it didn't work out. 

     

    123.45.67.89 failed after I sent the message. 

    Remote host said: 554 delivery error: dd This user doesn't have a yahoo.com account (testing123@yahoo.com) [-5] - mta123.mail.mud.yahoo.com

    The most common reason for a failed delivery is that the email address you entered isn't valid. If the Mailer Daemon says that the account doesn't exist, double-check the spelling of the address you entered. A single misplaced letter can be enough to cause a failed delivery. If the message continues to be bounced back to you, you might want to verify that the account hasn't been closed or moved. 

     

    If you are getting a failed delivery message for each incoming email you receive this could indicate the presence of a non-functioning forwarding address. Pease check your mail settings for a forwarding address that needs to be updated or deleted. If you find one you do not recognize please review all of your mail settings too.

    The mailer-daemon is a result of either your recipient's email address was misspelled or is no longer in use. You should be able to see why the message was bounced back to your inbox.

    You probably have some third-party email application that you need to uninstall you can install Thunderbird or any number of free email apps or you can simply go straight to the website instead of using some third-party software. Uninstall the third-party software run Malwarebytes clear your browser and just go straight to the website instead of using some kind of software just go straight there with your browser.

    It means your email did not go through. It went to the digital Twilight Zone. That's is what happens when you put a,wrong letter or leave a letter out or put the wrong punctuation mark in an email addree. Other technical difficulties can be why you get that message
