when you just disregard the email completely, maybe you can define it in the postfix or sendmail setup not to send to such addresses.

It will work when the job is rescheduled. I think a better place would be a JSV (job submission verifier) when the job is submitted.

Do you also check whether the user put a valid address into their ~/.forward?
