An email address validation web service is a type of address software that is used to quickly validate email addresses in a database. Rather than manually correcting email addresses on the back-end, email address validation web services verify emails at the front-end, or at the point of entry.
When used properly, an email address validation web service identifies errors instantaneously and allows users to verify the address at the point of entry. Email address validation web services put email addresses through a series of algorithms which gauge conformity with email addressing standards.
Email validation tools help cure organizations that are plagued with data concerns.
