Pretty much any time you get a bounce on yourself, you can figure it was an
intermittent problem (otherwise you wouldn't have gotten the bounce).

Virtual alias table: fair chance that the ISP has a different internal name
for your email address than what you use: someone was poking about in the
mail server and broke the link to the table that told them that
= (or whatever they call your account
internally). They then caught and fixed it quickly enough for you to
receive the bounce.
