Generally, it means you don't have an active connection to the mail server at the time you hit Send - but we need more information to answer that more accurately.  What mail client are you using, what version, what version of Exchange, are you using SMTP/POP, or what?

Usually, I've seen this with POP3 clients, and it can be resolved by restarting the mail client and resending the email in question.

It was with a Pop3 client and when I re-opened the email program it seemed to correct itself.

Thanks to all!
