emails set to me getting bounced back to sender

The emails sent from just one person (as far as I know) are getting bounced back to the sender with the following message: Mailserver for comcast.net unreachable for too long.  This has been going on for a few days.  I'm recieving other emails.  Any suggestions?

Is the sender using Yahoo?

One person is using att.net and another is using sbcglobal.net.

I believe those domains use Yahoo services to handle email. Yahoo senders sometimes get a bogus "server unreachable for too long" bounce message about 24 hours after sending, as described in http://forums.xfinity.com/t5/Email-Web-Browsing/Returned-email/m-p/2797184#M167766. See the reply to that message for an explanation.
