Go to your hosting mail box and check if it is not rejected
and check your Hosting IP address if it is not marked as spamm
if your IP is safe from Spamm assign be sure your Mail is delivered

The only way really is to check the return value of mail() which will either be true for sent or false for failed. This doesn't tell you if the mail left the server necessarily as it'll likely be queued for the MTA (mail transport agent) to deliver it.

if (!mail('me@example.com', 'Subject', 'Body')) { echo "Summut went wrong with sending"; }
Sometimes I've found this will tell you if the recipient isn't valid, but it really does depend on how the MTA is setup and whether it's free to send the emails at that point.

Beyond that you'd need to start messing with sending the mails directly which might cause all kinds of hassles and on a lot of servers you simply can't bypass the MTA for security reasons.

Send the mail to your self.

Also use if conditions as Trev mention with an example!

The right way to check whether mail function sedn mail right is to check response of action :

PHP Code:
(!mail('me@example.com''Subject''Body')) { 
"Summut went wrong with sending";

,but that isn't meaning the mail is received from recipient.
If you want to be a sure about that the email is received you have to do tracking email for open/read!
