Preventing Emails from Full Sandbox

How can you prevent the Full Sandbox from sending emails to Contacts and other non-User email addresses since these email addresses do not get altered?

 

Editing all emails is impractical, slow (even Bulk API takes several minutes on 100k+ records) and not necessarily effective: Scheduled Jobs can fire immediately upon activation of new sandbox, and thus can kick off workflow.

 

I've added org ID validation to many of my workflow email alerts but that gets in the way of workflow that you might want triggered for testing.

 

I'm seeking input on how other Admins and Developers handle this problem.

 

If like me, you haven't got a great solution, please vote for this idea:
