Thanks! So to answer my original question, below is a code which returns
a list consisting strings of email addresses: ("person@somewhere"
"someoneelse@invalid" "user@isp.invalid"). The address list is
constructed from To and Cc fields.

  (goto-char (point-min))
  (let (recipients
          (or (cdr (assoc 'to (mail-header-extract-no-properties))) "")
          (or (cdr (assoc 'cc (mail-header-extract-no-properties))) "")
    (dolist (item (append to-lst cc-lst) recipients)
      (add-to-list 'recipients
                   (nth 1 item)))))
