It merely means that something was wrong with delivery of the message. Probably it means that the other system was down/unavailable/refusing to accept mail. The system trying to send it will attempt to repeat the message for a period of time. Then it gives up and sends a message back to the original sender saying it gave up. The period of time is configurable and is typically 5 days, but that is often shortened by some system managers. So, the sending host manager, in this case, probably set it to 4 days. ////jerry > > _______________________________________________ > firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list > http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions > To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]" > _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
