If you send an email, via gmail, and the recipient doesn't get it for whatever reason (or if the address doesn't exist), would you get an error report?

Usually you do, yes. Haven't used gmail in ages...

Yes, you always get a reply saying that email couldn't be delivered.
- email address doesn't exist
- mailbox is full
- email rejected for some other reason
- email is delayed, but system will keep retrying (system is not your phone, but your email provider)
- email delivered, but attachment is dropped
Nature of error is dependent on recipient's system. Not all email systems will provide a meaningful rejection, since there are over 100 supported reasons in protocol response.
