    In my gmail account, I checked in Spam and found what I figure to be a tricky scam message; I did not view it.

    From: Mail Delivery System
    Subject: Undelivered Mail Returned to Sender

    I figure this is some sort of trick to get me to view the message, but it does bring about a question:

    Let's say I do send someone a legitimate message; and, for whatever reason, there is no such address, maybe because of a typo on my part or the receiver mistakenly left out a vital word or letter of their address when they gave it to me, what becomes of my sent message and how will I know that a mistake has been made ?

    Thanks for reading and all help is appreciated.

    Often you will get something like:

    "From: Mail Delivery System
    Subject: Undelivered Mail Returned to Sender"

    Sometimes the message will simply be discarded and you will get nothing.
