X.1.1 Email Bounce Error [Bad destination mailbox address]

4.1.1 Email Bounce Error

Reason

User Name In Email Address Not Valid: Delayed Message

Mailbox of the recipient’s email address is invalid or doesn’t exist and due to this message not yet delivered.

How to fix?

Check the username part (that means before ‘@’ of an email address) of the recipient’s email address for misspellings or missing letters. If an error is found, correct it in contacts list or address book for next time.

If the address looks correct, there might be an issue with the recipient’s domain. If necessary, contact the recipient another method to confirm their email address. Or contacting your mailbox provider can help sometimes.
