@comfortjeanius:  nice google search BUT it only works to "How do I block or filter email messages from specific senders in Outlook 2003/2007/2010/2013 for Windows?

and not TO specific Senders

one way is to create an outlook rule to defer sending
http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/microsoft-office/use-outlook-rules-to-prevent-oh-no-after-sending-emails/

configure the rule to include the 'bad email address'  and defer it as long as you can and it will sit in your outbox.. you might want to give it a color category..

This is the cheap and easy way.. a vba expert may chime in and give you a vba solution that or you need a 3rd party add-on.

This is actaully quite an common issue/mistake

It is pretty well documented on SlipSticvs Site
Slipstick Offers Rule Based Options like Defer as Ve3ofa has reccomended

However, they also cover adding VBA Script that will check the Email Address for the user

The Site offers instruciton on implementing as well as the VBA to do it

Sorry, I realized you're trying to do this with outlook.

If you have access to your exchange server, you can add a fairly simple transport rule to block outbound email to a specific recipient and customize the NDR returned to the sender to include something like, "Are you sure you didn't mean to send this to 'correct@address.com'?"
