Bounce

When you send an email to someone and it comes straight back with an error message, it is said to have bounced. Emails can bounce for many reasons. The most common are: a spelling or typing error in the address; the person you are sending to no longer has that email address; the person you are sending to has let their mailbox become too full to accept new emails; a piece of software on the receiving end thinks that your email is spam or that it includes a virus and sends it back to you.
