By invalid do you mean the format of the email-address is invalid or that the email-address
no longer exists? If the email address doesn't exist should'nt the sender get back a bounced
email notification?

The point isn't to send the email to the invalid address.  It's that I'm not informed when
they become invalid and don't notice that the mails stop being sent...  Next thing I know,
users are uninformed of prod deploys coming and I have to figure out which addresses are invalid
to fix it.

I would have thought setting failonerror to false would have done it, but that just allows
the build to continue after it fails to send any...
