        If you get into email validation, it is tricky. Thus, I do NOT recommend that you delete the seemingly 'dead' email address. But you mark it with a status (maybe: clearly good, probably good, probably bad, very likely bad). For the 'very likely bad' ones, I would be ok if you move them to Notes, such as "VL Bad: john.smith@emailvendor.com"

        That way we can review your changes and decide what to do with them.

        False positives or negatives seems very likely to me in this area.
