Email verification is an essential step in ensuring that your sales and marketing efforts reach the right audience.
An email verifier tool helps validate the legitimacy of email addresses and reduces the chances of your messages being marked as spam or bouncing. In this knowledge base article, we will explore how email verifiers work, the different status types they return, and how FlashInfo's embedded email verifier enhances deliverability for your sales and marketing campaigns.
How Email Verifiers Work
An email verifier checks the validity and deliverability of email addresses by following these steps:
Syntax check: The verifier first examines the email address's format to ensure it adheres to standard email address syntax rules, such as the presence of an '@' symbol and a valid domain name.
Domain check: Next, the verifier checks the domain name to confirm that it exists and is properly configured to receive emails.
Mailbox check: Finally, the verifier attempts to verify that the mailbox associated with the email address exists and can receive messages. This step may involve pinging the mail server or using other advanced techniques to ensure the email address is valid.
Status Types Returned by Email Verifiers
Email verifiers typically return one of the following status types:
- Valid: The email address has passed all checks and is considered deliverable.
- Invalid: The email address has failed one or more checks, indicating that it is undeliverable or nonexistent.
- Risky: The email address is considered deliverable, but there is a higher risk of it being a spam trap or causing a bounce. This status may be due to a history of bounces or other factors indicating that the address is unreliable.
- Unknown: The email verifier could not determine the deliverability of the email address, usually due to the mail server not responding or other technical issues.
- Catch-all: The domain is configured to accept all emails sent to it, regardless of whether the specified mailbox exists or not. These email addresses can be risky, as they may result in a higher bounce rate.
