WTF bounce department

Weirdarse email bounce today…

Hi. This is the qmail-send program at byron.aussiehosts.com.
I'm afraid I wasn't able to deliver your message to the following addresses.
This is a permanent error; I've given up. Sorry it didn't work out.

<gipbexd@yahoo.com>:

Why is this so weird? Well because neither myself nor the recipient are on yahoo.com, no way did I address the mail to “gipbexd”, and thirdly, the recipient told me she received four copies of the mail anyway.

I should add that this was sent via Squirrelmail webmail, so it’s not like my Outlook got a virus…

Wi-erd.
