Default BFG Contest Email Failure

I sent my entry into the BFG Giveaway Contest and received the following error email:

"Hi. This is the qmail-send program at nvnews.net.
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.

<contest@nvnews.net>:
Sorry, no mailbox here by that name. vpopmail (#5.1.1)"

Any suggestions?

either the email address is nonexistent, or qmail is exploding... dunno, I can't check.

if you're really that impatient, I guess you could email the info to me at thebaron at nvnews dot net (yes, I'm even getting spam as I post my email address on boards), and I'll make sure that it gets in the pot. but if you're that impatient, you're insane

Naw, just thought I'd let any admins know about the error.

Or maybe there is no giveaway and it's all a big nVidia conspiracy...

Oh sure, BFG gives you three but they only gave us one? WTF is that all about.

Not mad at you because that was a great review, just kinda pissed at BFG.

Sorry, but I forgot to set up that e-mail account. It should work now.

Our server admin was troubleshooting my e-mail account a few weeks ago because my ISP wasn't accepting forwarded mail from a third party from port 25 in order to cut down on spam.

Before the change, I always received e-mail that was sent to a non-existent address at nV News - like contest@nvnews.net.
