Why You Need to Validate Your Mailing List

Utilizing an email list can be a powerful marketing strategy for nearly any business. However, it’s not uncommon to build up a list of unresponsive email addresses. When you send emails to these addresses, they can bounce or simply sit in the recipient’s inbox, unopened. It may not seem like a big deal, but internet service providers can see this data and use it to determine the validity of your emails. If the provider sees emails from you bounce too many times, they may decide to classify your emails as spam, or even block them altogether. This is where email address validation comes in. There are ways to ensure you’re only sending to customers who really want your emails and will open them. But first, you should understand some basics.

Why Use E-mail Verification?

The history of e-mail dates back to the very early days of the Internet. The basics of the protocol were laid down as early as 1982, in RFC822. And even though this very early specification had been updated by RFC 2822 in 2008, and several updates have appeared since (e.g. 6854 in 2013), the basics of the protocol have not changed much. This is, on one hand, a considerable success of the protocol. It provides a solution to a very natural need of the users of the network: to use the Internet for sending messages like conventional mail. And this good old protocol still meets many of the requirements. In spite of the enormous amount of alternative means of online communication, e-mail has managed to maintain its popularity even today. The reasons for this include the simplicity of the protocol, the fact that it is indeed a standard. It is decentralized in the sense that there is no distinguished provider for which one has to necessarily subscribe to be able to use e-mail. This can indeed be an advantage when compared to e.g. social networks whose providers get hold of our private data when we use them.
