    Description

      There are several TLDs reserved but .invalid is specifically reserved for invalid domain names. I purpose to add an exception to email_to_user function that doesn't send and returns true in this cases.

      http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc2606#section-2

      This improvement will give admins the feature of disable mails for this users.
