How does email address verification work?
The SMTP monitoring sensor sends a RCPT FROM: [email address] command to the SMTP server, and verifies that the SMTP server accepts it.
Whether the SMTP server will accept any given email address depends on its configuration & policy settings. You will need to consult with your SMTP server vendor to determine what these settings are.
