Hmm, in the case of mail that should probably be:

if (mail(...)) {
  //passed that off to the smtp server/mail binary OK: whether it drops
  // it on the floor who knows
} else {
  //not sent

A true return from mail() doesn't necessarily mean that the mail will 
actually get anywhere; it just means that mail() has successfully passed 
it on to whatever process is configured to handle mail.
