I have sent a mail from my GMail account and after a day have received following response.

This is an automatically generated Delivery Status Notification

THIS IS A WARNING MESSAGE ONLY.

YOU DO NOT NEED TO RESEND YOUR MESSAGE.

Delivery to the following recipient has been delayed:

Technical details of temporary failure:

Can anyone explain why I received this?

  • Strange message? That looks quite regular to me, as well as very self explaining. "The recipient server did not accept our requests to connect"...

It means that the server (the portion after the @ sign) may not be accepting e-mails, or might be malfunctioning.

Double check that the e-mail address is spelled correctly. It's not a problem with gmail, but the server on the receiving end.
