A delivery delayed message from a mail delivery service means what it says. It can't deliver some mail.
You need to fix that on the mail delivery side. JIRA has simply sent email that is valid to somewhere. It's the mail system that's having a problem.
Because the imported data contains pointers to email addresses that have delayed delivery.
Look at the details of the smtp logs in JIRA if you need to - you will find that these emails going out and giving you problems are structurally no different to other emails. It's your email system doing this.
I'm guessing the backup is xml? A simple text search and replace would do that before the import.
After the import though, you're going to need to identify which are the problem email addresses, then what fields they're in and edit the issues to swap them over.
