What does this mean? (Yahoo! Mail)

When I send mail to most of my contacts, everything goes fine. But to some of them, I immediately get a message from "MAILER-DAEMON" and the subject is "failure notice". Does this mean those contacts have blocked me?

Usually you typed something wrong when you addressed it or the person you mailed it to has changed their e-mail address ! You are not blocked at all ! That's more of a pain to do than changing your e-mail address ! I'll bet you just made a slight error when you typed in the addresses , yours or theirs .

Or that email address your using no longer works. The person might have deactivated the account or the provider might have done that due to inactivity.

Sometimes also that will happen just as a random error, too, because it's happened to me before and when I tried again to send the same e-mail to the same address a little later, it went through just fine. So try again and if you still get an error, it's probably something wrong on the other end, like bubalu said, their account is no longer any good. As far as I know, this error does NOT mean you are blocked. When you "block" someone's e-mail on Yahoo, they can still send you mail, all it really means is you can't see anything they try to send you.
