Define "successful." Sending an email is indeed easy. Making sure it gets
where it's going is impossible. The message is often passed from one SMTP
server to another, and there is no rule that the POP3 server that eventually
receives it must notify the sender that it has been received. In addition,
the POP3 server may delete it if it is configured to do so, or the client
may delete it, or the user may ignore or delete it. Your only assurance that
the email has been received is if the recipient voluntarily sends a receipt
or a response.
