X.1.4 Email Bounce Error [Destination mailbox address ambiguous]

4.1.4 Email Bounce Error

Reason

Multiple Mailboxes For Recipient: Delayed Message

The recipient’s email address belongs to more than one email inbox and their email provider is confused which one to use and so email message has not yet been delivered.

How to fix?

Check 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 necessary, contact the recipient another way to confirm their email address.

For the code that starts from 4.X.X

A persistent transient failure is one in which the message as sent is valid, but persistence of some temporary condition has caused abandonment or delay of attempts to send the message. If this code accompanies a delivery failure report, sending in the future may be successful.

For the code that starts from X.1.4

The mailbox address as specified matches one or more recipients on the destination system. This may result if a heuristic address mapping algorithm is used to map the specified address to a local mailbox name.
