I usually get a message back from my ISP's mail server if a message
fails.  I think it keeps trying automatically for about 5 days with no
intervention from myself.  Useful if somebody is changing over mail
servers.  I've not known this with any other ISP but I'm sure they
must do this?

Take care.
