Real-Time Email Mailbox Verification

Two levels of service are available depending on your speed & accuracy needs.

  • Global Email Premium provides real-time email mailbox checking domain-specific logic as well as SMTP commands and other proprietary mechanisms to validate inboxes are live. This can take up to 12 seconds per email address. Our built-in “time-to-wait” option allows you to customize how long you want customers to wait for a real-time validation.

  • Global Email Express sacrifices accuracy for higher speeds than Premium by using a cached inbox validation database of known good and bad emails. All emails sent to the service will also be cached so they can be re-evaluated within a 90-day cycle.

Deliverability Confidence Score

Returns the probability [0-100] % of an email sent to a mailbox will be successfully delivered.

This score will range from 0-100. The higher the number, the higher the chance the email is “deliverable.” Determines the probability of emails reaching the mailbox of your recipients. Email records with a high percentage are more likely to reach the mailbox. We suggest filtering by result codes first, then performing a second filtering based on scores to refine results.

Privacy Flag

The top level domains or countries that may be sensitive to privacy laws. Returns Y for yes and N for no. Handle emails with a Y in privacy flag with caution.

The Privacy Flag will show a “Y” if the Top Level Domain might adhere to privacy laws such as GDPR. For example, the Top Level Domain “.de” is a German Top Level domain. Any Top Level Domain that end with a “.de” will have a “Y” in the Privacy Flag field. Any Top Level Domain that does not adhere to privacy laws will have an “N.”
