  1. An electronic mail message is said to bounce when it is not successfully delivered.
  2. Sometimes people will say ``bounce a copy of that mail to someone.'' This is more commonly called forwarding mail.

If you send an e-mail and it does not get delivered, usually a copy of the undelivered message will be sent to you as e-mail, with additional header lines attached to the front of it, containing information about what went wrong.

If you need help with mail problems, send mail to or contact the help desk.
