    When a mail server receives a message, and there is no recipient within their local address book, or the recipient's mailbox is full, slow, or some other technical problem - the receiving mail server sends a "bounce" message back to the "Reply-to" mailbox - in this case the Y! group mailbox.

    The no plain text parts simply means that either Y! chopped off the content as it might have been in HTML format, or the recipient's mail server did not include any message other then the subject i.e. bounce.
