There are not a lot of guarantees.  A big part of the problem is that 
you can't get instant feedback.  Your mail server may queue the message 
and not even send it right away, or it could get sent, and your mail 
server doesn't find out for several minutes while the message goes out 
on the 'net and eventually bounces because the address is bad.  There is 
probably a way you can get your mail server to inform you when a message 
fails to get delivered, but beyond that you probably can't do much.
