Incorrect Wallet Address

Hey guys, recently created a phantom wallet, linked a ledger device which generated a 44 character address. During the process of transferring my SOL from my exchange to my cold wallet, it was transferred to a 43 character address (same address as the 44 but missing a character).
My questions are

  1. Are there any steps that can be taken to recover my SOL?
    Some context: Transaction has been confirmed on the blockchain and can be viewed on Solana Explorer as success
  2. Do 43 character SOL addresses exist/are active?
  3. If 43 character SOL addresses don’t exist or are inactive, do exchanges usually have a safeguard mechanism preventing people from transferring to inactive/invalid SOL addresses.

Any advice or thoughts from you guys regarding this would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance!
