What is email address validation?

When a customer or prospect enters their email address during your onboarding process, they can often make mistakes - genuine or intentional. But how would you know? You need to validate an email address at the point of entry, so you can communicate effectively.

Email validation corrects inaccuracies in email addresses and ensures consistent formatting, in real-time. As well as checking the syntax of an email address, the @ sign we're all so familiar with nowadays, email address validation also confirms that the email domain exists (the part after the @ sign). You'll be able to know whether that specific mailbox actually exists, and whether it can receive incoming mail in under 3 seconds, so you know you can communicate with an individual successfully. 

Make email address validation work for you

Checking email address validity isn't just useful at the point of data capture. How do you know if the email address you've captured previously are valid? With 30% of email addresses going bad in just one year, you need to regularly cleanse your database to remove any bogus and incorrect email addresses.

Email address validation works for both corporate and personal email addresses, including free email providers such as Googlemail and Hotmail. So whether you're a B2B or B2C organisation, we've got you covered.

What can email validation do?

Identify spelling mistakes and typos

Email address validation corrects mispellings and typos, to provide the true email address where your customer can be reached.

Syntax checks

You might take it for granted that customers will use the @ sign when entering their email, but they might not. Email address validation checks this all-important symbol is present and correct.

Domain checks

Have peace of mind that the domain a customer has entered is correct, no matter how weird and wacky it might be.

Deliverability checks

An email address might have an @ sign, and a valid domain, but is the whole address real? Email validation detects whether the email mailbox really exists, and if it can receive incoming mail.

Global capability

Validate email addresses globally, from a single interface.
