Temporary Failure mailer-daemon.comcast.net - Multiple emails

I keep getting emails from mailer-daemon.comcast.net that is rejecting an address in a distribution list. Email comes 1-3 times daily.

How do I stop it? Below is the body of the email (I changed the address to user):

This is an automatically generated Delivery Status Notification.     

 

Delivery to the following recipients was aborted after 32.8 hour(s):

 

  * user@cogentlaw.com

 

Reason: Temporary Failure

 

Below is detail form an attachment:

Receiving that e-mail more than once is normal. It's likely that the recipient's incoming mail server is down or there is another issue with it and isn't able to receive any incoming e-mails.

 

Once the period to send it expires, in some cases, it's 72 hours, you should receive a final e-mail that it could not be delivered and the Comcast server will delete the mail.

I have this problem with two email addresses that I have communicated with for years. I have verified that the addresses are still good.

comcast is continuing to try to send to an email I know is dead. Attempts have been ongoing for 2 weeks! How can I stop the attempts?
