This is probably just an issue with the side of the recipient's. I don't believe that you can do anything on your part except wait. Google automatically resends the mail whenever possible, so your email will end up on your recipient's inbox eventually.

If it is urgent, do use other means to contact the recipient (like using the phone, etc).

I actually found out the issue. it seems that my domain was hacked and it was sending out spam, 600k emails in fact and most of them were bounce backs which ended up blowing up my entire inbox space. after running out of space, gmail just delays the sending of the emails until its freed up. hope this helps someone. –  duckx Jan 13 '13 at 19:30
