email server question

I received an email from a "systems administrator" that states

Your message did not reach some or all of the intended recipeints.


The following recipients could not be reached:
A configuration error in the e-mail system caused the message to bounce
between two servers or to be forwarded between two recipients. Contact your
administrator.
<...xxxx.xxxx.navy.mil...#5.4.6>

Is this a problem at the Navy.mil end or is it on my end.

thanks

I'm sorry but the undeliverable message from System Administrator is actual from my Exchange Server. I get this NDR a few seconds after  I try to send an email address someone@XXXX.XXXX.navy.mil


Is the problem still on the navy's side?

I don't want to call up the navy and say that it is their side that is the problem when it may be on my side.

thanks

Post the exact NDR.  I'm inclined to agree with hcoltrain based on the information we have.
