emails bouncing with Mail server for "domainname.com" unreachable for too long

Hello, I have a user who has been receiving intermittent messages when sending from a yahoo account to what looks like various corp domain accounts. This user only has access to the yahoo account so if its anything on the remote end not much can be done. I've seen other posts on this but honestly not one I've seen provides any clarity on what might be causing it.

In some of the bounces the message goes to multiple people and only bounces on one, on some its just sent to one person and that bounces. The message is below.

Does anyone have any insight into if this is a yahoo issue, a user issue (virus, config), an internet issue or something on the bounce users email?

Sorry, we were unable to deliver your message to the following address.

<bounceuser@domainname.com>:
Mail server for "domainname.com" unreachable for too long :

See if you can send a test message to that user.  Or see if you can ping that mail server by name.  The ping may not reply, but it should give you an IP if it is a valid smtp mail server.

ping mail.domain-name.com

or use a tool such as mxtoolbox.com to test it, or try to telnet to it on port 25.
telnet mail.domain-name.com 25  or if you have determined a valid IP address try telnet ip address 25.

I haven't done that but I'm sure its valid. In one case the user received the email after sending a second time, later on.  Its also multiple users on multiple domains, separate emails....
