Error 4098 & 12071

Please can someone shed some light on this problem for me.  I cant find anything on these errors in the knowledgebase.  Im running exchange server 5.5 SP3.  I have a number of domains that my exchange server handles - approx 10.  I have no idea of who this message is trying to be sent to only who is sending it.
What Im trying to find out is what causes this error and why.
Any ideas?
