getting email error when trying to reply to sent email

A user sent an email to an outside (the LAN) email address.  The outside person tried to respond but got a very strange message I have never seen:

The message below is what I received when I tried to email Tina.

The following message to <tantonacci@calvaryspringfield.org.> was undeliverable.
The reason for the problem:
5.1.2 - Bad destination host 'DNS Malformed Query Error looking up calvaryspringfield.org. (MX).'

The return address is valid.  Please advise.  thanks.

There is a problem with that domain.


Something is interfering with the email connection and stopping anything from connecting.

Appears now to be a problem with the sender's ISP.  Thanks.
