X.1.6 Email Bounce Error [Mailbox has moved]

4.1.6 Email Bounce Error

Reason

Email Address No Longer Accepts Or Forwards Messages: Delayed Message

The recipient’s email address no longer accepts email messages and so the email message has not yet been delivered (even though it did in the past).

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.
