Our email validation service via API calls checks:

  • Syntax

    Check if the email address conforms to the IETF standards by using a complete syntactic email validation engine.

  • If the address is branded

    Check if the address is custom and linked to a business email account or if it is generic and coming from a free email service.

  • If the address is disposable

    Check if the email address is supplied by a known disposable email address provider such as Mailinator, 10MinuteMail, GuerrillaMail, and 2,000+ more.

  • Mail server existence

    Check for the availability of email addresses’ corresponding domains by ensuring the existence of DNS MX records.

  • Mailbox existence

    Check if the email address exists and can receive emails via the Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP) through email-sending emulation techniques.

  • Use as a catch-all email address

    Check if the email address can receive emails for more than one email address.

Practical usage

Improve marketing campaign results

Improve marketing campaign results

In email marketing, it is important that the emails you send are verified, validated, and received by customers. One of the most common causes of email bouncing is sending to unverified email addresses.

By eliminating bounced emails and utilizing email verification and email validation tools, you can increase your sender score and email campaign quality.
