How to read your Bulk Email Verification file

The .csv or .txt file with the email addresses generated by Hunter contains several fields. Some of these fields represents the verification checks we run to provide the best verification score. Let’s have a look at them together:

  1. Email address: the email address you provided.
  2. Result: an email address can be deliverable, risky or undeliverable. Deliverable means every information we got regarding this email was fine. Undeliverable means something would make the email undeliverable, for example, the domain could not exist. Risky means we can't be certain and because of some factors we fear it could bounce.
  3. Regexp: analyzes the format of the email (true = the email has a valid format).
  4. Gibberish: this check ensures the address doesn't look like a random email address (false). For example, 1e49cs1pb6@company.com won’t pass the test.
  5. Disposable: shows if the email address has a domain name used for temporary email addresses.
  6. Webmail: verifies if the email address uses a webmail like Gmail or Yahoo.
  7. Mx_records: we check if there are MX records on the domain. If there aren't, the email address can't receive emails.
  8. Smtp_server: this check is successful (true) if we are able to connect to the SMTP server (indicated in MX records).
  9. Smtp_check: we test the email address and see if it bounces or not.
  10. Accept_all: we check if the server has a catch-all policy which accepts all the email addresses.
  11. Score: it’s the overall verification score of the email address.

To sum things up

The Bulk Email Verification service performs multiple checks on an email address. First of all, it validates the format and makes sure it isn’t a temporary address or a webmail. Then the system contacts the mail server (without sending any emails) to make sure there is indeed an email inbox for the requested address.

This functionality can only be performed for professional emails: webmail addresses (gmail.com, yahoo.com, etc.) aren’t verified.

Limit: only up to 200 email addresses p/domain name can be verified.
