The service provides validation of email addresses. It determines not only that an address has correct syntax and references a functional domain but also that it matches a valid account properly registered under the domain and configured to receive email. In this way, it ensures that email data submitted online or accessed from vendors represent deliverable addresses.
API methods support submission of an email address or list of addresses. For each one, the API returns a status of verified, disposable (provided by a service unusable for ongoing communications), unreachable (not connected to functional mail handlers), illegitimate, or undeliverable. Methods allow specific checks for full mailboxes, expired domains, and other common issues that prevent email delivery.
The following is a list of libraries from ProgrammableWeb's Library Directory that matched your search term. Although there many different interpretations of the word "library" among software developers, ProgrammableWeb adheres to a specific definition so as to clearly distinguish libraries from SDKs and frameworks in a way that will facilitate clean search results. In ProgrammableWeb's parlance, the term "library" is strictly used to describe a platform-specific software tool that, when installed, results in the provisioning a specific API. Conversely, SDKs are exclusively for consuming APIs and Frameworks are agnostic to specific APIs. If you think a library, SDK, API, or other asset is missing from our directory, be sure to check our guidelines for making contributions to ProgrammableWeb.
