Support / FAQs / Services / Email Validation

How does email validation work, are addresses checked against a database?

Our email validation service goes far beyond checking the format of the email address (whether it contains an @ symbol and no illegal characters), it does a live ‘ping’ to the mailbox to check whether the email address actually exists and can accept incoming mail. Use our online demo to see all the other types of information that are returned in the results.
