Symptoms

The list of email addresses will need to be in a semicolon separated format and can be built in different ways (data fields, SmartObject call, item reference, etc.), but if there is an empty email address that results in leading/trailing semicolon; this will cause the email to error:

administrator@denallix.com                                                  -- works
administrator@denallix.com;codi@denallix.com               -- works

administrator@denallix.com;                                                 -- fails, trailing semicolon
;codi@denallix.com                                                                  -- fails, leading semicolon

Resolution

Using an Inline Function > Text > Split will handle these erroneous use cases and allow for the successful sending of an email.
