      That's an answer, but the OP still has not figured out what the question
      is, so he should do nothing until the question is understood.

      In most cases, discarding mail to invalid addresses is unwise, the
      address could be an honest typo and the message may be important.

      If the concern is dictionary attacks, just use a sensible postscreen
      configuration to keep the bots away or accept the fact that one can't
      keep email addresses secret, focus on stopping spam, not hiding email
