Hi, thank you for submitting your question to Google Answers, I hope I
can provide the information you are seeking.

You can always try sending a message to it but I would do so from a
junk e-mail address in case it is just a spam scheme. But I doubt it
is valid.

Although we can?t answer personal questions, you are only asking to
validate the address and there are two links I can provide where you
can test addresses.

Neither is 100% accurate but they do a very good job.

reports that it is unable to contact the mail server.
? does not appear to be a valid email address.

Of course you didn?t provide a complete address and there are hundreds
of more domains you can test for yourself based on different
countries, etc.

I also tried UK, .gov, .net, and .org with no luck.

There is only one good link on Google

Thank you again for turning to Google Answers for help.

Is there a .net, .com, "dot" something at the end of the email? email
addresses are always in this form : they start with a email id not a
www, they must include a "@" and end with a address "dot" something
(.us, .gov, .com, .name, .biz, .org, .net etc)

Just by looking at it I can tell you that it's missing a .com or .net or .org etc.

From: eliteskillsdotcom-ga on 06 Mar 2005 12:27 PST looks to be for sale and is the only valid result that
pops up for "vipemail".

It is an invalid domain unless they are the domain owners of vipemail.

The easiest way is to send it an email saying "test". If it bounces, it's invalid.

Eliminate vipemail.xls from my list above. Duh. That isn't a TLD.
