recipient validation with smtplib

Is there a way to use smtplib to get recipient validation. I can use smtplib
quite happily to send emails using the locahost's sendmail, but sendmail is just
fire and forget, so some bad addresses eg id***@www.dingo.zzz don't cause any
error in the sending application. I know some smtp setups do enforce recipient
validation, but it doesn't seem terribly easy to do this with sendmail. I
wondered if there were some way to do this in python?
