Thanks, Maurice

I am guessing you were trying to send the email to a unused or recently retired mailbox.
The postmaster may be postmaster@<website>.

If this helps good, if it doesnt I will look into it further.

EDIT: You may have just misspelled the username, back when I had AOL and I misspelled a username an automated Mailer-Daemon would send a message similar to that.

What is the MX record?
Type in the email address or the domain name, then hit 'MX Lookup'
 to get the Mail Server/Exchanger info.
Enter an email address or a domain name without the extra www
or other host names(e.g. user@example.com or example.com).

Helpful Information about MX records
Internet Email systems rely on DNS MX Records to transmit Emails
 between domains (known as zones in DNS jargon).
 The MX Record in the host known as the Mail Exchanger (Mail Server) that is responsible 
for receiving the emails bound for that particular domain. Domains can have multiple
MX Records, each normally specifying a different host with a priority level.
 Hosts with lower priority level are to be contacted first as
 emails arrive. If a domain (zone) does not have a specified MX Record, the A Record
(Address Record) for the zone is
normally used as the Mail Server/Exchanger host.
