Ingredients for Sending Email/Updating Database "before page load"

Type of Checkout Answers

I am using for my gateway with local checkout.
My desired result is the same as you mentioned for PayPal Remote:
"If you use Remote checkout however, the checkout success page really only means that paypal has agreed to process the transaction."

When verifies that the transaction was successful, it sends me to my success page. That is the only time I want an email notification to go out and that's when I want the database to be populated --- NOT before and NOT without verification from

If there is another way to accomplish this timing of events by only code on the confirm page, please explain.
If not, then please help me understand what the ingredients are for sending email/updating database "before page load".

I want a sort of checklist that I can use each time to make certain that my shopping process is working the way it is supposed to:
-What are the active components of this checkout_success page?
-What are the rules that need to be followed so this page works correctly?
-What bindings, in general, need to be on this page?
