What are the status of email verification API?

Last updated by Roshan Jonah on August 21, 2017 13:21

Our API outputs three different primary statuses at present. 

  • Valid: The email address represents a real account/inbox available at the given domain
  • Invalid: Not a real email address or no user exists at that designated address
  • Risky: When the domain responds to every verification request as positive, and therefore cannot be fully verified
  • Unknown: For some reason we cannot verify valid or invalid. Most of the time a domain did not respond quickly enough
