This API endpoint allows you to perform Email Validation and email reputation checks on behalf of your users in an almost identical fashion to our standard user API structure.
|Example Value / Format
|Your site's domain or the domain that requested this integration. REQUIRED
|Your user's current secret created during the authentication process. REQUIRED
|The email you wish to validate for your user. REQUIRED
|email address, must contain @
|When this parameter is enabled our API will not perform an SMTP check with the mail service provider, which greatly increases the API speed. Syntax and DNS checks are still performed on the email address as well as our disposable email detection service. This option is intended for services that require decision making in a time sensitive manner.
|Maximum number of seconds to wait for a reply from a mail service provider. If your implementation requirements do not need an immediate response, we recommend bumping this value to 20. Any results which experience a connection timeout will return the "timed_out" variable as true. Default value is 7 seconds.
|Force analyze if the email address's domain has a typo and should be corrected to a popular mail service. By default, this test is currently only performed when the email is invalid or if the "recent abuse" status is true.
|Example Value / Format
|Does this email address appear valid?
|Is this email suspected of belonging to a temporary or disposable mail service? Usually associated with fraudsters and scammers.
|Did the connection to the mail service provider timeout during the verification? If so, we recommend increasing the "timeout" variable above the default 7 second value. Lookups that timeout with a "valid" result as false are most likely false-positives and should be not be trusted.
|How likely is this email to be delivered to the user and land in their mailbox. Values can be "high", "medium", or "low".
|Is this email likely to be a "catch all" where the mail server verifies all emails tested against it as valid? If this value is true, then we suspect the "valid" result may be tainted and there is not a guarantee that the email address is truly valid. This value can also be true when the mail server is returning a temporary error.
|Validity score of email server's SMTP setup. Range: "-1" - "3". Scores above "-1" can be associated with a valid email.
|Overall email validity score. Range: "0" - "4". Scores above "1" can be associated with a valid email.
|Suspected first name based on email. Returns "CORPORATE" if the email is suspected of being a generic company email. Returns "UNKNOWN" if the first name was not determinable.
|Is this email from a common email provider? ("gmail.com", "yahoo.com", "hotmail.com", etc.)
|Is this email suspected as being a catch all or shared email for a domain? ("admin@", "webmaster@", "newsletter@", "sales@", "contact@", etc.)
|Does the email's hostname have valid DNS entries? Partial indication of a valid email.
|Is this email believed to be a "honeypot" or "SPAM trap"? Bulk mail sent to these emails increases your risk of being blacklisted by large ISPs & ending up in the spam folder.
|This value will indicate if there has been any recently verified abuse across our network for this email address. Abuse could be a confirmed chargeback, fake signup, compromised device, fake app install, or similar malicious behavior within the past few days.
|Indicates if this email frequently unsubscribes from marketing lists or reports email as SPAM.
|Default value is "N/A". Indicates if this email's domain should in fact be corrected to a popular mail service. This field is useful for catching user typos. For example, an email address with "gmai.com", would display a suggested domain of "gmail.com". This feature supports all major mail service providers.
|A unique identifier for this request that can be used to lookup the request details or send a postback conversion notice.
|Was the request successful?
|A generic status message, either success or some form of an error notice.
|Array of errors which occurred while attempting to process this request.
|array of strings
