    Use mail() function. See docs for details...

    No way I know of to check whether it was accepted. All PHP does is pass a message off to your system's MTA (Message Transfer Agent - usuall Sendmail on Unix/Linux). It's up to the MTA to get it there or take care of a bounce. PHP washes its hands of the whole thing...
