bounce message
Jump to user comments
A notification message returned to the sender by a site unable
to relay e-mail to the intended recipient or the next link
in a bang path. Reasons might include a nonexistent or
misspelled user name or a down relay site. Bounce messages
can themselves fail, with occasionally ugly results; see
"bounce mail" and "barfmail" are also common.
