Who might find an e-mail verification useful tool?
The range of potentially interested users who might want to know how to check if an e-mail is valid is broad: from natural persons who wish to check the existence of an e-mail that they have received from a friend, colleague, or acquaint, to the businesses, who sell online through the direct marketing (and send newsletters to the ones who subscribed).
So, the list may look like this:
E-mail marketers and brokers
Lead generation companies
Profit and non-profit organizations
Is there any API that developers could use?
What are the benefits of an e-mail checker?
The reasons you might lookup the existence of an e-box are pretty obvious:
You wanna be sure that a letter or letters you are going to write and send will not get into the void (and they are read by humans, not bots – e-mail address owners)
To improve the bounce rate of your e-mail campaign (according to various sources of data, it is believed that about 80% of reasons for unsuccessful direct marketing campaigns is because of the irrelevance of the e-mail database)
To update/refresh the existing database before sending it if the price of refreshing is lower than the price of sending letters to irrelevant e-boxes.
As you can see, a Gmail checker is about saving your time, optimizing expenses, and improving the success rate of up to 90% of delivery throughout the campaign.
Frequently asked questions
How do you obtain data for the verification?
The biggest part of online services that provide the functionality of online mail does have a special way of interacting with our e-mail address checker, as they can be pinged. It means they take a special string of a request and send back a special string of a response. Not all of them but the most part. And so as they respond to our requests, we know they exist. Further on, we connect to the mail server and, by the sequence of technical commands, we find out some data about some e-mail, which we then use to understand if this mail exists, valid, a one-time mail or not, is owned by a bot or person, is it added to white or blacklists (e-mail spam test), and other things. Eventually, this forms the % of trust to this e-box, which we show in the check e-mail results. Also, we connect to other resources to collect data about this e-mail from them.
Do you record the e-mails you’re checking?
No. We highly respect your confidentiality during the e-mail validation and we store information about the check no longer than it should be stored to perform checks (usually, seconds or minutes, after which it is erased completely).
Do you use social media for confirmation?
Yes. Some of them are Google, LinkedIn, and Gravatar – all those with open access.
How this service differs from competitors?
Although, technically, they are very closely similar, actually, the fact of connecting to a host of external resources to collect additional data makes the real difference. Not always, a mail server can tell the needed info – but additional sources of data can.
Is there any trial?
Yes. For free users – natural persons, there are 10 checks from 1 IP are allowed per month in this free e-mail verifier. For corporate users, which attached the payment data, there are 100 free checks upon the registration or 10 if they do not attach payment data.
Is there a bulk check available in the e-mail verifying software?
Yes. Corporate clients may upload a TXT or CSV file with up to 100,000 lines of e-mail addresses to perform a check if e-mail is real.
