Outgoing email copied to another address

I sent an email to two friends on Tuesday using Windows Live Mail. They both received it but I received a mail delivery system response saying it couldn't be delivered to lecoiombo@yahoo.com, mailbox disabled (554.30). This is an address I have never heard of and certainly did not send to. It hasn't happened since. Any advice would be welcome.

Re: Outgoing email copied to another address

Have you tried sending to the same two individuals since?

The most obvious thought is that one of them has auto forwarding set up on the account.  Because of the way this works the mail is sent as is, with the same envelope sender address.  That means any bounces will come back to you.

Re: Outgoing email copied to another address

Thanks, I haven't sent to them since, but this sounds like the solution as I don't get the message failure when sending to others.

Re: Outgoing email copied to another address

Try sending one mail to each person and see if one of them causes the bounceback.

Once you've done that you can let them know so they can fix the issue.

Done. I've pinned it down to one of them and let them know. Many thanks.
