Mailing list validation tool

I'm looking for a tool to validate email addresses, not just as deliverable but
actually valid. To do this the recipient mail server will need to be contacted.
I have inherited a large mailing list, and since AOL has taken to rejecting
delivery if any one recipient is invalid I don't want to burden the mail system
by sending a 100k quarterly newsletter one at a time.
Is there a tool in Fedora?
Note: suggestions for other tools welcome, but I'd like one packaged which I
don't have to find, build, and possibly maintain. I can use the socket library
from newstools if I must, but I'd rather not roll my own if there's a solution
of the "why didn't you just use..." type.
