Email verification statuses

After an email address is verified, GetProspect will assign it one of the following statuses:

Valid email address. It means that our system has received a confirmation from a mail server that this email address exists. The accuracy for valid emails is 95%.

SAFE – these emails exist and have been verified for safe sending.

 

Accept-all email address. This email address can receive messages, but due to a domain-wide setting, it is not possible to determine a true validity of such email, so we mark them as Accept all. Such emails are also known as "catch-all" or "unverifiable" emails. Learn more on accept-all email addresses.

SAFE – if you have a dedicated email server with your own IPs, accept all emails may be safe for sending dependent on the overall health of your list.

DON’T SEND – if you use a third-party email provider that requires a bounce rate below 4%, these emails are not safe for sending.

 

Invalid email address - means an email address does not exist or is not active anymore.

DON’T SEND – these emails do not exist and are not safe for sending, can result in a bounce.

 

Unknown email address – emails with status impossible to determine. This email appears to be OK, however, the domain and/or server is not responding to our requests. This may be due to an issue with their internal network, expired domain names, or when the mailbox is full.

SAFE – If you have a dedicated email server with your own IPs, unknown emails are normally safe for sending.

DON’T SEND – If you use a third-party email provider that requires a bounce rate below 4%, these emails are not safe for sending.
