All you need is a complete list of all the email addresses that exist, and away you go.

I had one, but I think I misplaced it. Cool

Seriously, how do you intend to do this?
You can check that the general format is correct, (leading section containing no unusal characters, followed by an '@', followed by a trailing ection containing no unusual chrs) but I can't see how you can hope to get further than that,

You can try sending an email and waiting an arbirtary amount of timeto see if you get a failure message, but the failure message won't be readable from the DB.
