Check were the email is sent to in the TO field.
If you are using any nickname to choose the address in the TO field, remove it
give the exact email address and check if the email would go

Does it happen to anyone you send or only certain contacts ?

Make sure the email address that you are giving is still valid

If the email address is correct and still giving issues do this
Tools --> email accounts --> view or change existing email account
click on the account and press change and then More settings
go to outgoing server tab
and check " my outgoing server requires authentication"

The problem may be 'cos

1. The recepient's email id is not existent in the server and removed
2. the nick name is changed
3. Try sending it again with full name or full email id. this will populate the nick name and u can verify against the one u sent
