I am subscribed to a mailing list which sends out a periodic "probe" 
mail to check if the subscribed addresses are still valid.

This won't help you if the e-mail address gets invalid and you have no 
other way to contact the project owner, but it might help to detect 
problem addresses.

Maybe you could also add the option to specify alternate e-mail 
addresses besides the primary address, just like LinkedIn does, for example.

This won't help you with current inacive processes either, but might 
help you in the future to get back in touch with project owners that 
loose their e-mail address.
