One (or more) of the names you tried to address to could not be uniquely found. The message should specify which one(s) had an issue.

You can try forwarding the bounced message (minus the bounced explanation text) back to those addresses. Before pressing send, click the Check Names toolbar button to see if Outlook knows exactly who to send the message to.
