Just consider the many transactions with addresses such as:

that many feedbacks system use today, including bad guys and the bad/good direct marketing people.

What is the envelope address for these messages?

The ones that end mail to me (about fifty addresses in my personal mail archive, mostly noreply@, some no-reply@, some others) generally use the same address,and it's valid in the sense that the address is syntactically valid and that mail to the address is accepted by the best MX for the domain.

I would not bet that mail to such an address is stored on disk, or causes any reaction other than (at most) an autoresponse. But YMMV.
