Which Checks Does Email Validator Perform?

DeBounce uses a multi-layer checking process, with every single email going through the following testing and cleaning steps:

  • DNS validation, including MX record lookup
  • Disposable email address detection
  • Misspelled domain detection to prevent Typosquatting
  • Syntax verification (IETF/RFC standard conformance)
  • Temporary unavailability detection
  • Mailbox existence checking
  • Catch-all testing
  • Greylisting detection
  • SMTP connection and availability checking
