OK, .. but I've used mail and mailx for years and never saw this
status report before so it is something unique to ubuntu setup.

I'm using mailx from command line to test mail setup .... that is all
the mailing I've done with this new install.

I expected any reporting of the fate of mail would have to come from
the app that sends it out... postfix.
