I don't think so. There are 3 options (as far as I can see):
* You will get a reply from the receiving server that says:
   - Your message is stored offline.
   - Your message is delivered to the sender (if he is online).
* You will get a bounce. (now you know there was a problem)
* You will get no answer. (now you know there was a problem (assumed that 
JEP-0079 is made a MUST protocol))
