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 how-to and tutorial content that matched your search term. ProgrammableWeb's how-to content comes from two sources; full-blown tutorials that we publish ourselves and other highly relevant tutorials that we find elsewhere on the Web. This list represents on combination of both tutorial types and if you go to ProgrammableWeb's API University, you'll not only be able to find more, they are organized based on your role (API providers or developers who consumes APIs). If you know of a tutorial that would be of interest to the ProgrammableWeb community, we'd like to know about it. Be sure to check our guidelines for making contributions to ProgrammableWeb.
