See the FAQ at <http://wiki.list.org/x/UIA9>. If that doesn't help, see
the script at <http://www.msapiro.net/scripts/remove_bad_address.py>,
but as its description at <http://www.msapiro.net/scripts/> says

Removes syntactically invalid addresses from a list. This should
normally not be required as the pipe

bin/list_members -i <listname> | bin/remove_members -f - <listname>

should suffice.
