Dig through your MTA logs and you'll see rather quickly whether or not 
they were sent or if it's a problem on the remote end. In my experience 
it's generally a problem on their end.

Sometimes you'll see a log message about the connection being dropped 
and the message possibly being sent more than once. That can be an 
indication of problem (like too much load) on your server and should be 
looked into further. Still, in almost every instance I've investigated 
this has come down to problems on the remote end.
