Email Verification FAQ
What Is Email Verification?
Email verification is a process of checking if an email address is valid. Use an email verification service to check emails before adding them to your email lists.
Why do I need to verify my emails?
A high email bounce rate will permanently damage your email reputation, and it can lead to your email marketing account closure. Email verification is the most effective way to eliminate your hard bounce rate because it can tell if an email address exists or not.
How does email verification work?
During email verification, the services check the following:
- Email syntax: if the string provided looks like an email address.
- DNS: looking for MX records that are required for email sending.
- SMPT: initiating an email sending but aborting before sending the email.
- Catch-all: checking if the mail server is saying OK to anything.
- Disposable: filtering temporary email providers.
- Role-based account: filtering emails related to a position.
If you only want to check a single email, most email verifiers provide you with an option to check an email address for free. You can check three emails without logging in on EmailAcademy.
Bulk Email Verification
One of the most common uses of bulk email verifiers is to clean old email lists. It is essential to clean a list you haven’t emailed for two months before sending an email. You can eliminate bad emails from our lists during bulk email verification, ensuring you keep your hard bounce rate to a minimum. You can also use our bulk email verifier tool.
Email List Verification
List verification is more or less the same as bulk email verification, with the only difference being how you pass your emails to the email verification software. Some email verifiers allow you to copy your emails and just paste them into their applications. They will then convert the pasted list into a CSV file and process the bulk email verification.
Email Verification API
Connecting to an email verifier via API is very useful to verify emails in real-time on the sport when they subscribe to your newsletters. If they provide an invalid email, you can prompt them, and bad emails will not be added to your lists.
Email Verification Integrations
Some email verifiers offer integrations with major email service providers. You can usually connect your email marketing tool with the email verifier using an API key. Once the connecting is set up, you can import your email lists with a single click, and when the verification is completed, you can take action from the email verifier.
Automated Email Verification
Only a few email verifier is ready to run automatic email verification. You connect your email service provider, and the email verifier will check all your emails every week/month and remove any bad emails for you automatically. Using an automatic email verifier can keep your account free of any future hard bounces and allow you to focus on other important matters. EmailAcademy doesn't offer automated email verification at the moment, we recommend MillionVerifier's automated email verification system, EverClean.
