What kind of errors?

If it's an invalid email address you wont know until it's sent back to you.  You can always do this:

On Error Resume Next
set mymail = Server.CreateObject("CDONTS.NEWMAIL")
mymail.to = "whoever@wherever.com"
mymail.from = "foo@fooland.com"
mymail.subject = "blah"
mymail.body = "blah blah"
if err <> 0 then
  mymail.send
else
  response.write "ERROR!"
end if
set mymail = nothing

other than that, you wont know until after it's sent.  You can do FSO checks on the folders in C:\inetpub\mailroot

I belive those are QUEUE, BADMAIL and DROP or something like that.
