Your email is not XMPP compliant :O) It should be:

  <iq type='get' to='RECIPIENT'>
     <query xmlns='http://jabber.org/protocol/disco#info'/>

<query xmlns="http://jabber.org/protocol/disco#info">
<feature var="ejabberd:config" />

This are some possible errors I could get with ejabberd:

<iq from="RECIPIENT" type="error" to="SENDER" >
     <query xmlns="http://jabber.org/protocol/disco#info"/>
   <error type="cancel" code="404" >
<remote-server-not-found xmlns="urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:xmpp-stanzas"/>

<iq from="@@@server" type="error" >
     <query xmlns="http://jabber.org/protocol/disco#info"/>
   <error type="modify" code="400" >
<jid-malformed xmlns="urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:xmpp-stanzas"/>

But when I send to an unexistant recipeint, I get the same reply as when 
sending to an existing one:

<iq from="_UNEXISTENT_RECIPIENT" type="result" to="SENDER" >
<query xmlns="http://jabber.org/protocol/disco#info">
<feature var="ejabberd:config" />

So it will probably not work...
