Undeliverable message when sending email

Hi Experts,

I'm getting the following NDR back, I need some help with identifying where the problem lie?
The person I'm trying to send to put as "recipient.email@somewhere.com" to hide to original email address and my email (the sender) and put as "my.email@somewhere.com"
I suspect the issue is at the recipients end, but would need to understand how you can see see that based on the NDR log below
__________________________________________________________________________

Hi,

The answer lies with your recipients mail server, the hint is: #5.4.6 smtp;554 5.4.6 mail loop detected.

They appear to have forwarding to another location which in turn is configured to route back to their mailbox, either with a client side or server side rule.

Best to get in touch with their IT team and mention "error 5.4.6 mail loop detected"

Hope that helps.
