It means what it says. Your system tried to contact mailhost.sharkms.ch. It was up but was not listening to port 25. They may have been reconfiguring their mailserver, or maybe the system was overloaded or maybe its mail queue area was full. Anyway, you should be running a sendmail daemon that will retry the mail. These usually go through after a while. Check the mail queue in a few hours.
