Yes. Email verification is 100% CAN-SPAM compliant. We don’t actually send your contacts email – ever. We use multiple data points gathered in real time from the internet to collect information about the email address.
You may receive the status result “Accepts All” in your report. Accepts All or Catch All email addresses are created to ensure messages that are accidentally addressed to an incorrect email address for a domain can still be received.
For example, you may be trying to reach Joe.Smith@madeupcompany.com. If you accidentally type J.Smith@madeupcompany.com and the company has an accepts all / catch all process in place, then that message will be redirected to a central mailbox that literally “catches all” extraneous email messages sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
No, we never send your contacts email. We use multiple data points gathered in real time from the internet to collect information about the email address.
Yes. Your email addresses will never be resold, shared, or misused. They are used for verification purposes only.
Certain email addresses are honeypots. These are email addresses that are used to detect spammers. There are thousands of spam bots searching the web for anything that looks like an email address to add to their spam database. They collect millions of addresses and start sending them spam. They also sell those addresses to other spammers which means those email addresses get an abundance of unwanted emails.
The purpose of a honeypot address is to detect spammers. These email addresses are added to websites, often hidden from actual human users, to trap spammers. Once an email is received at a honeypot address, the sender is flagged as a spammer and blacklisted.
Whether you acquired a honeypot email from a trusted partner email list, a competitor entering the email address on your website, or by an accidental typo, the result is the same. You will be labeled a spammer if you send an email to a honeypot email address.
The term disposable email address refers to addresses that have no long-term value to the owner. These disposable accounts allows a user to receive email at a temporary address that expires after a certain time period lapses.
They are used in many instances from submission and sign-up forms to the downloading of sensitive competitive information such as white papers. Do you really know who is registering for your white paper? Maybe it’s the competition…
When a disposable email address is received, you have no chance to develop an email dialog or to accurately measure your marketing efforts.
Email lists need to be exported as either a .txt or a .csv file. All email addresses should be in the first column with no additional data.
