Gmail won't stop trying a bad email address, how to stop?

Hi, my Gmail at work keeps trying to resend an email to a person no longer at our vendor's company. For about a week now, it keeps telling me the email is bad, but there's no option for "ok, stop freakin' trying". Or am I missing it?

Yes, we have IT at work, yes I'm asking this place first.

thanks!

Did you delete the message out of your Sent folder?

There's other people in copy that are valid emails. Will that affect future replies to those people?

thanks

It would if you delete it. Is this an email that's scheduled to be sent out on a cadence? Or was it a one-time send which went to everyone else and also keeps attempting to send to that person?

No, it's something I sent to a group of people that are active, but for that one address.

I'll try deleting, and just go off of future replies back to me. I'll update if that works.

thanks

In the meantime if they keep coming, set up a filter and send them to trash.
