In the Shulchan Aruch 695, the Rema states that a man should not send manot to a woman to avoid the problem of safek kiddushin. If he did send the gift to a woman (and suppose that was the only gift he sent) did he fulfill the mitzvah?

  • I believe that SA advises not to do it this way, but, it doesn't seem to indicate that if you did this, you get no mitzvah points. – DanF Mar 24 '16 at 15:04

Yes, the mitzva was absolutely fulfilled. It's practical advice not to do so (between single people), but nowhere near a sufficiently strong thou-shalt-not as to constitute a mitzva-fulfilled-through-a-sin.
