We have prepared a list with a series of bounce-back errors to help you identify the cause of your e-mail delivery to the recipient(s) indicated:

- User unknown
- Invalid mailbox

Out of all the errors that are mentioned above, the most common error that results in email bounce back is email is written incorrectly or the inbox you’re trying to send emails to doesn’t exist anymore. It is important for you to check the spelling of the email address that you are trying to send email to.
Other types of errors:
- Full mailbox
- Mail quota exceeded
These error messages show that the recipient’s inbox is full and the server will not accept further messages until the user has made room within it.
- Resources temporarily unavailable
- Connection timed out
These errors refer to temporary problems with your email server, which in this case is SBCGlobal email server. The server will normally attempt to postpone your message within 48 hours. After this time you will receive a notification if the sending has not been successful.
- Un-routable address
There could be several reasons behind the occurrence of this error. The recipient’s email address may contain errors. It could also be that you have exceeded the maximum limit for sending emails within an hour, which is a problem that can be solved on its own because you just need to pass some time before you will become eligible to send emails again. Your server may not even be able to determine the correct path to send your email due to a DNS configuration error with the MX records of the recipient’s domain. The owner of the recipient’s address can ascertain this.
- Could not complete sender verification
This is another common error, which occurs when the username that you are using to authenticate your email account is not correct. Make sure to configure your email app in order to use the entire email address as a username and the problem should resolve.
