    bounced back?

    Is this sentence OK?

    I received a call from Barbara telling me that when she tried to send an email to me, her email bounced.

    It's understandable and it's not incorrect. It seems a little wordy to me though. How about "I received a call from Barbara telling me she had tried to send me an email but it got bounced back"?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
