Description
Email addresses created or entered into the DN system might be invalid.

Steps to Reproduce:
Email addresses created or entered into the DN system might be invalid.

Ensure that email addresses entered into the system is valid.

For example, given my email, CheeWee.Chua@codegear.com, the steps needed to figure out whether the domain portion of the email address is valid or not is to strip everything before the @ including the @ sign away, so that it leaves codegear.com.

Then, using a DNS lookup, lookup the codegear.com portion with a query of type MX on a DNS server.

If there's response, the email address is assumed to be valid.

If there's any questions, feel free to contact me at CheeWee.Chua@codegear.com. Thanks.
