Email Validation

Is there anything out there that can check email addresses and see if they can recieve emails? I know there are programs that will check the email address by accessing the mail server and stopping the mail sending process right there. But there are users out there that will fill their mail boxes up or other user related things that stop emails from coming in. I would like to know if an email can really get into the mailbox successfully so I don't have any more email problems that I don't know about.

Re: Email Validation

generally, a mail program will kick back an email if it's not delivered. if you don't like your mailbox filling up with returned mail, then create another email address for it to be returned to.

If you want to know in advance, the only way is to send an email to the address.
What are the chances...
