Why Email Verification Lookup?

Email Verification Lookup performs various email address checks for syntax errors, typos and curse words, disposable addresses, mail server and mailbox existence, and more.

  • Catch typos and curse words

    Email Verification Lookup checks every address for common typos seen in popular email domains. Avoid users mistakenly or deliberately mistyping email addresses when subscribing or signing up for your services.

  • Automatically detect disposable email addresses

    Spot abusive users who attempt to sign up with disposable email addresses from Mailinator, 10MinuteMail, GuerrillaMail, or other 2,000 known disposable email service providers.

  • Avoid syntax errors

    Easily detect invalid email addresses that do not follow prescribed Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) formats with Email Verification Lookup’s complete syntactic email validation engine.

  • Verify the existence of an address’s mail server

    Every valid email address should have a corresponding mail server with its own DNS MX record. Email Verification Lookup can check if an email address has such records and therefore exists.

  • Ensure Mailbox existence

    Email Verification Lookup’s email-sending emulation and SMTP connection techniques let you verify that an address is able to receive emails.

  • Notice catch-all email addresses

    Email Verification Lookup detects catch-all email addresses that are not assigned to a specific individual and may result in hard bounces.

Cybersecurity and Brand Protection Specialists

Email validation is a healthy practice from a cybersecurity standpoint in that it helps detect malicious actors who often hide behind erroneous or disposable email addresses to execute phishing and spamming attacks while preserving their anonymity.

Consistently verifying email addresses also contribute to your domains’ reputability. Being flagged by third parties as a spammer or ending up on a blacklist as a result of suboptimal email practices can severely damage your reputation and affect operations.

SaaS & Website Managers

Website business owners and SaaS managers can benefit from Email Verification Lookup to reduce the likelihood of faulty signups.

For instance, legitimate users who made a typo in their email addresses while registering can’t reset their passwords or won’t receive important messages like order confirmations. Such situations can cause frustration and extra work for your support team.

Illegitimate users who deliberately entered a wrong email address or used a disposable one may be there to abuse your freemium features. They take up your system resources with no intention of ever upgrading and contributing to ROI.
