The sender MUST delay retrying a particular destination after one attempt has failed. In general, the retry interval SHOULD be at least 30 minutes; however, more sophisticated and variable strategies will be beneficial when the SMTP client can determine the reason for non-delivery.
Retries continue until the message is transmitted or the sender gives up; the give-up time generally needs to be at least 4-5 days.
