With Exchange 2003 and a decent MTA in front there is no need for that.
Teach Exchange to only accept valid e-mail addresses (no problem with
Exchange 2003, easy task with addon tools for exchange 2000 and maybe
5.5). Then use whatever does recipient-callouts (exim has this builtin,
postfix too AFAIK, there are milters for sendmail that do this).
