Delayed Message: Recipient system incorrectly configured
The email message has not yet been delivered because the recipient's email provider cannot accept the message. Typically this is caused by a configuration problem creating a mail loop that will no longer handle the message.
Contact the sender's email system support team or administrator as the receiving server is not configured correctly. This is something that is typically fixed at the administration level.
Also, consider contacting the recipient through an alternative email address or other means.
