You can do this automatically up to a point.

TMP could (with permission) send out test emails and mark the address if the email bounces.

That, ofcourse, doesn't mean someone is actually reading the mailbox or that it didn't just get silently trashed, but on the plus side it requires no user interaction.

POLL DESCRIPTION

Email addresses - like salad dressing - often go bad after time. Therefore, it makes some sense to have members re-validate their email addresses periodically.

How often should re-validation requests be made?
