Do you know a new tool called “Get Email lookup” has been published in our catalog?
What can I do with this tool?
If you use this tool you can discover if an email is valid, hardbounce, softbounce, spamtrap, free, temporary and recipient exists.
There are catchall (like Yahoo) or temporary domains that do not return the actual existence of an email. For those cases, and for certain blocked system accounts, you can receive bounced mails.
Usual bounce ratio after cleaning is lower than 3%, but it depends on your email domain list
