Is there any online service to check if a given email address is valid? I don't want to use my private email address to verify an email address by sending a trial message and waiting for a non-delivery message.

You can try Verify Email Address or the checker from IP-Address.org.

verify-email.org fails but IP-Address.org succeeds. I tried my corporate email address on both. Thanks. –  Mehper C. Palavuzlar Aug 8 '11 at 15:45

BriteVerify sounds like what you're looking for. It offers a few different levels of verification, like scanning to determine if an email address is from a valid domain, and also verifying it against public social profile information to be sure it's valid.
