If you attempt to check whether the email address exists you will get blacklisted as that is what spammers like to do. Commonly referred to as a directory harvest attack.

If you are doing a mailshot then it sounds like you need some mail management software. If you get a decent package then it can handle the bounce backs and anyone clicking reply and typing unsubscribe etc.

Lots of packages available, depending on what you are doing.
Google Bulk email software or list management software and most hits will be of interest.
