Any solution to mail shots failing due to invalid email address?

As per the title really.

I have set up UE mail shots from a database for a client.

So he is able to do a few different searches, and send an email to all the returned results.

Unfortunately because his database is now pretty big, he quite often seems to run into the problem where it fails or times out if there is a blank or invalid email address.

I'm pretty sure I've asked about this before, but can I just check again that is is an issue on the email server, and there isn't really a solution (or at least an easy solution) to this problems other than ensuring all the email addresses are valid?

I can understand his frustration with it, it I think I've done as much as I can with it now (set up the limits by time, set it up to process the sending in a new window so he can get back to where he was on the site while it's doing its thing.)

But he is asking if I know anyone with more database experience to fix this. Which I wouldn't have a problem with if it was something which does have a solution.

Any advice welcome! Thanks.
