New submission from Paul Dubois:

When the tracker's emails can't be delivered the tracker sends mail to
roundup-admin informing us of the failure. Many such failures are temporal in
nature but some of them will be repeated because the email address really has
gone bad. A human could decide enough is enough. But, what to do?

We cannot set the email to blank, it is a required field. We can retire the user
altogether, but that stops the user from logging in and fixing it. We could add
a flag to the user class suspending any email to them. 

Any thoughts?
