Someone below said that their email program would not accept an invalid id in their address book. Someone else suggested firstname.lastname@example.org, and I poo pooed it.I'm using Netscape. When I send to the invalid id I receive an error that says something like "sorry, you have not specified a valid recipient".However, the other suggestion is better than nothing.Won't prevent the emails from going out...but at least you'll get a message back from the mail daemon saying that an email has been sent to the bogus id....and you'll know that you have a virus.
