It merely means that something was wrong with delivery of the message.
Probably it means that the other system was down/unavailable/refusing
to accept mail. The system trying to send it will attempt to repeat
the message for a period of time. Then it gives up and sends a
message back to the original sender saying it gave up. The period
of time is configurable and is typically 5 days, but that is often
shortened by some system managers. So, the sending host manager, in
this case, probably set it to 4 days.
