    The error message in the bounce that you received is :

    <>: host[] said: 550 Requested action not taken: mailbox unavailable

    This is a generic error. It does not specifically state they are over quota, their account has been suspended, or any other information except that it's a 5xx level smtp code which means Hotmail does not want you to try sending that account email again.

    If you are sure it's a good email address, and you are trying to send them several GIF files, try putting them into a zip file and attaching that file to the email instead of sending them several GIF's which could possibly be triggering a spam filter.
