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.
