[REBOL] Re: Testing validity of email addresses

That is possible. Email domain names are resolved using the MX records in DNS servers, not the A records that REBOL queries. So, not only using that code you would probably get an IP address that is not that of the real mail server, but you could as well find an email domain that doesn't have an A record.
