Hi:
For the past three days, because my friend gave me an wrong e-mail address
un-wittengly, I've been receiving an annoying notification, 'Un-deliveryed
Mail message' every day.

----------------------------------------------------------------------

This is an automatically generated Delivery Status Notification.

Delivery to the following recipients is still underway after 49.4 hour(s):

* non=delivery@rainy.com (Alia)

Will keep trying and contact you if the message can't be delivered
permanently.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

My question is;
How to delete this, an annoying messages permanently?

BTW, this morning I e-mailed her with a correct e-mail address after
tele-talk and received an e-mail back from her.

Thanks for your help in advance.

Normally, an ISP will not try to send after 4 days, (96 hours). If you can
hold out, you should get a "We give up" notice at that time and that should
end it.

You can't.

There is no guaranteed delivery of e-mail. There is no guarantee that
mail hosts are reachable, up, responsive, or may be too busy to accept
further connections. As such, retries are needed. Your server is
telling you that there is a problem in delivering your e-mail to the
recipient.

Your e-mail provider only tells you that there was a problem in trying
to deliver your e-mail. They don't give the specifics, like what error
code and comment (status) was returned by the receiving mail server that
caused the DSN (delivery status notification).

However, their error message DOES tell you that they (your e-mail
provider) will keep trying to resend your message until it eventually
gives up. It doesn't say when it will give up. The mail server is
configured to try a maximum number of retries with some interval between
them but they don't tell you what that is. They might retry for 2 to 6
days.

You'll have to find out from your e-mail provider as to how long they
will keep retrying to send your e-mail before they give up. Only they
know how they configured their mail server. You no longer have that
e-mail. Your sending mail server has it. You're no longer in control.
The server is. You could contact your e-mail provider and asked them to
purge any outbound e-mails still pending in your account.
