What do you want checked?

A simple batch file could check the basic format and and see if the host has an
MX DNS record (see @MX[]).

The only further test I can think of would be to connect to the MX, say "RCPT
TO:user", see if it says OK, and disconnect (which would be rude).

What do you want it to actually do?

|Just checking whether the basic format is OK can yield a lot of false negatives (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Email_address#Validation), which is probably why such a plug-in is so hard to find.

Of course. I suspect that the probability that a randomly constructed email
address which obeys all the rules (is "valid"?) could actually result in a
delivered email is very near 0.

What I would like to do is to test if a string is a valid email address. I found a program called Express Archiver to collect the addresses in my OE DBX files and I'd like to check them. Some are 100% wrong.

also i'd like to find a way for it to work in TCMD 8-12.1
