However, if you send a test e-mail, how will you judge 'success' and 'failure'?

A friend sent me an e-mail a couple weeks ago. In transit, it sat on a server for four hours. This intermediate system was between him 
and me, not necessarily directly part of the systems serving his or my account. 
Would you call that success or failure? E-mail from other domains was coming 
through fine at the same time; and if he'd sent a second e-mail 10 minutes 
later, there's a reasonable chance it could've beat the first one to my inbox 
by 3 hrs 50 mins.
