strange mail error message
 
Hello ....

Does anyone know why I keep getting this message? it does not happen every
time I send an email to that person, just sometimes:

"The following message to someone@somedomain.com, could not be delivered. Reason: Mailbox overflow."

what does mailbox overflow mean? and why this happened.

the mail server I am sending to uses qmail.

P.S: off course this is not the real email address :)


thanks in advance

Sounds to me like they have a mailbox size limit set and your mail would exceed their allowance.

I am afraid this is not a quota problem, I know what is the over allowed quota error message look like.

anyways, thank you for trying yo help me!
