Failed message delivery


Certain contacts cannot receive my messagers forwarded
on Yahoo and are returned failed delivery. I have asked others to send messages to them and there is no
problem. Both recipients are french mail addresses. Can anyone suggest a way to deal with this. I used Explorer which is not good as my laptop stalls sometimes and then Google Chrome which is better. BUT still
the mails are returned `failed delivery`

Are you able to reply to email from these people? I ask because the most common cause of what you're seeing is that you typed the email address wrong into a contact, for example including quotation marks at the beginning of the address or missing a letter from the front.
If that's not the case please post the undeliverable message you receive when trying to send them mail as that could give some clues.

Undelivered mail

Thank you for the reply. The recipients are friends who, in the paST, HAVE ALWAYS RECEIVED MY MAIL.

Their addresses are the same as before. Could it be the laptop or Yahoo? Both are with French addresses.

Do you receive an email telling you that delivery failed? If so, what does it say exactly?
The other thing that causes this is SPAM filters on the recipients' accounts not liking something about your email address, your IP address, Yahoo! addresses in general, or some email server in the chain. If it's one of these then there isn't much you can do apart form ask the recipients to check their SPAM folders for your email or, if they are using email addresses belonging to a corporation, speak to their email administrator.
