I have a list of one million email addresses of varying quality (the list has never been pruned) which needs to be cleaned. All addresses are syntactically correct, but many of the mailbox accounts may have expired.
Can someone recommend a tool for this? I've tried a few Windows programs that claim to be able to do this, but they all sucked in one way or another. Either some dll were missing or the program kept crashing all the time. I need something that is solid, works as advertised and that can be used for bulk validation. Preferably something that works on Linux and is free, but a commercial Windows solution would work too as long as long as it works.
