Q3. Why do I get a "Failed Delivery" message?
When you get mail from a "POSTMASTER" or a "Mail Delivery Subsystem" with a subject similar to "Failed Delivery," this means that a message you sent was undeliverable and has been "bounced" back to you. These messages are produced automatically and usually include a reason for the delivery failure.
Bounced messages normally consist of two parts. The first contains the reason for the bounce; the second contains your original message.
The most common reason for a failed delivery is that the email address you entered isn't valid. If the POSTMASTER says that the account doesn't exist, double-check the spelling of the address you entered. A single misplaced letter can be enough to cause a failed delivery. If the message continues to be bounced back to you, you might want to verify that the account hasn't been closed or moved.
Q4. Why do I receive messages addressed to other people?
Incorrect delivery of a message is extremely unlikely. There are two reasons you might receive messages not specifically addressed to you:
· The sender thinks you're someone else. It's not possible for two people to share the same ONGC ID/email address, so the sender might have made a small typo and caused the message to be sent to the wrong account.
· If you can't find your address in the "To:" or "Cc:" field, it might be in the "Bcc:" ("blind carbon copy") field of the message. It will look as if you've received someone else's message since your address won't appear anywhere in the header.
