email bounce backs

Ive had an email bounce back saying that it has been deleted without being read, why on earth would I get this?

 

This is what came back from the mail delivery subsystem (ive taken the email add and email title out):

 

Your message

 

To: ---------

Subject: RE: ----------

Sent: 01/02/2010 09:56

 

was deleted without being read on 01/02/2010 09:56.

 

 

Could this be because the email account has been deleted? Ive got it immediatly after sending the email, litterally seconds after, so Im a bit concerned as to what it is.

Thats all that came, unless there is more that can be accessed in outlook

 

Depends on the version of Outlook (eg Express or not) - you need to view the headers for the email to get more info.

 

Doesn't look like a proper bounce message, more than likely some spam/virus filter that's canned your message before the mailbox received it.

Im not sure on the version of outlook, its not express though.

 

Ive emailed the address before, it is a reply to a series of emails that have been sent between us and Ive never had this before, thats why it was a bit strange.

 

Could it be because the inbox is full?

Its not a problem with outlook, I have no trouble sending messages, neither does the rest of my company by the sounds of it (nobody else has complained).

 

I have a phone number for the person, which I tried ringing, it rang a couple of times and then the call cut off, so Im a bit worried that with no answer on the phone and this with the emails leaves me a bit stuck.

Perhaps they're on holiday? Dan's link above suggests delegation problems can cause the message, a typical scenario if someone has gone on holiday or something.

If thats the case mate, would the recipient not just use the "out of office" function if they were away?

 

hmm, good point. I couldnt see the emails being delegated if the person was on holiday, its their business' main email address, which is why I was thinking it could be a full inbox.

 

Possible, but there server should warn them that they are over there inbox size limit, I get that alot. :thumb:

Most likely then a misconfiguration. Tinkering, no doubt.

Not necessarily.
