Cannot send email to certain contacts - Permanent Error

Cannot send email to certain contacts - Permanent Error

When I try to send email to certain contacts *this was a hotmail.com, I've also had it with a gmail.com*, I receive the below:

 

from: mailer-doemon@comcast.net

 

This is an automatically generated Delivery Status Notification.

Delivery to the following recipients failed permanently:

Reason: Permanent Error

 

How do I resolve this?

Re: Cannot send email to certain contacts - Permanent Error

It usually means something is wrong with the address you are sending to.  Are you certain there is no typo in the address like a space or extra dot or something?  It could also mean the recipient's email provider's server is having issues.
