How to verify emails

In this article, you’ll learn how to verify emails with and avoid sending campaigns to risky or inactive emails.

With Email Verifier, you can check a single email address or verify a list of addresses from a file, as well as check the imported prospect list.

The email verification process involves several tests, including syntax check, MX record check, and SMTP authentication.

This process allows you to confirm that the emails in your list are active and safe to use for campaigns.

Use case 1: Verify individual emails

Use case 2: Verify emails in bulk

Use case 3: Verify emails in your prospect list

It costs 1 credit for every email verification, regardless of the verification result (email status).

After verification, there are a few possible statuses:

Valid address (green) – The email address is active and has successfully passed all the checks.

Unverifiable address (yellow) – The email address might receive emails, but the domain settings do not allow us to verify the email with 100% certainty.

Invalid address (red) – The email address doesn’t exist or is inactive at the time of verification.
