I have an Outlook user that is getting an error each time he tries to send to an email group a (distribution list)  I think he has a member in the group that has a bad email address.  Is there a way of testing these addresses without actually sending an email message to each one individually?

Do you have a copy of the error he's receiving? It may point us in the right direction.

This problem turned out to be a duplicate entry in the distribution list.  The problem now is I can't seem to duplicate the problem when I put duplicate entries in a distribution list intentionally.  I guess the good news is I no longer have a user in my network complaining about something.
