Practical usage

Increase marketing campaign results

Increase 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 bounced emails is sending them to unverified email addresses. Email campaign providers may close the business account when emails regularly bounce. By eliminating bounced emails and utilizing email verification and email validation tools you can increase your sender score and email campaign quality.

  • Ensures that your users can reset their password securely if forgotten: without email address verification and validation, there’s no way to validate someone’s identity outside of manual human verification.
