Email bouncing back with error - conversation with **** timed out while sending message
Posted on 2009-05-06
We have an independent contrator sending reports to multiple recipients at a client's company. Recently the contractor has been receiving a bounce back from our client saying;

I had the contractor send the same message to my email account and then I forwarded it to the multiple recipients in the original email, the result being the email is received by the intended reipients. The email does also contain attachments which are less than 300KB.
I have researched this on both on the internet and Experts-Exchange and haven't found a solution yet. I'm hoping some one can shed some light on this.
Thank you for your time!
