Frequently asked questions
Is my email checker a free email verifier?
Most email checkers allow doing some free checks if the email is real (usually, some dozens of them per day, week, or month). To receive functionality of bulk check or to expand the number of checks per time, you have to pay according to the subscription plan of your tool.
Is the ‘Okay’ status of a checked email means it will not bounce my letter?
Not in all cases. But, as a rule, sending letters to only ‘good’ addresses will reduce the bounce rate maximally – to 0%… 10% (with average 2.5%-5%).
Is a letter sent to check email online?
No, all data to check email is gathered based on the sequence of small commands that online email verifying software exchanges with a domain server of an email address and it does not result in sending any letter to anybody. It is similar to a ‘ping’ option if you know what that is.
I have hundreds of thousands of e-addresses to lookup. Does it mean I have to make it all by hand?
No. There is an option of bulk check in most email checkers but it is not free of charge. Some Gmail checkers accept up to 100,000 emails in one batch and give the result in a matter of minutes or a few hours. With hands, it would be impossible to verify does this email exist if you had that many of them.
How paid checks differ from free ones?
In many ways. For instance, it could take 5-15 seconds to check a single email for free, while in a batch, it would take only a fracture of a second for each individual one. Also, the number of made verifications and data gathered within a single check can differ. And, finally, there is a number limit of checks that a user can do for free.
