Suppress email change notification email in sandbox

Is it possible to suppress or somehow avoid the automated email change notification/confirmation email.

 

In our case - we have an automated job (integration) that loads user records in the sadbox environment. Initially, actual user email addreses were loaded. Now we need to replace them with a "fudged" emails, so users do not receive any email, BUT when we update the email oa user record, the notification email will go out to the old email address.

 

Is there a way to avoid this?

Thanks werewolf. This helps.

 

It appears that  restricting email domains is the only way to avoid this notification. This makes sense for production environments. For the sandbox though, I was hoping there would be an easier way to resolve this.

Well, it makes sense if you think about it -- the idea is to prevent people from using Salesforce.com as a spam tool, and you could use Sandbox as one just as well as you could use production if these checks weren't in place.

Agree. And in our particular case, we should not have created the users with their real email addresses in the first place, then would not even have this issue.
