Real-time Email Validation

How it works


User enters an email

This is a live process that kicks off in real time as the user enters the email.


Syntax check

We check to see that the address is well formed.


Check domain server

This is where we check to see if the domain has a mail server.


Request to send mail

Now we ping the domain to see if it is accepting mail.


Email validated

The email address is validated and passes through the form.
