How Email Verification Works

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 live. This can take up to 12 seconds per email address. Our built-in “time-to-wait” option allows you to customise how long you want customers to wait for a real-time validation.

  • Global Email Express offers higher speeds and performance 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.

Email Address and Domain Correction

Identifies common syntax errors, illegal characters, and parses individual components. Verifies domain name against a database of known good and bad domains. Checks and corrects most misspelled domain names, standardises casing.

FCC Mobile Domain Detection

Global Email is enhanced with a list of mobile domain names updated by wireless service providers. This feature assists in maintaining CAN-SPAM compliance by indicating mobile email addresses that marketers are prohibited from subscribing without permission.

Email Verification - Privacy Flag

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.”
