Failmail is the pinnacle of failure or the result of a consistant string of failures and is often used to describe someone else's helpless situation
"He's got failmail!" to describe someone in the process of failing

in a different context "What's wrong with him?" "He just recieved some failmail" or "some failmail just arrived in the post"

or can be used as an insult; "Thats a terrible idea, check your inbox for some failmail you bad"

This is not a new term, but a new use for an existing one.

Fail Mail: When a user's email gets stuck in their Outbox and refuses to be sent, for any reason.
John found out why Julia had not received his invitation. There it was, stuck in his Outbox. His beautifully written, sweet, sincere invitation to the girl of his dreams had turned into fail mail.
