Deliverability & Email Validation
Deliverability depends on multiple factors. When preparing to deploy an email marketing campaign, ask yourself the following questions:
- Is the message personalized and relevant to the recipient?
- Does the email campaign comply with the CAN-SPAM Act?
- Is the email list clean and void of hard bounces?
Exact Data validates every email list prior to list turnover. This means each email is put through the following process:
- Email address syntax check. We remove addresses that don’t resemble legitimate addresses such as
larry#yahoo.com, donald!@$aol,com, etc.
- Availability of the domain of email address. We check the availability of the domain. For example, we
verify valid addresses like email@example.com or
firstname.lastname@example.org, and mark nonexistent domains as "invalid" and
remove them from your list.
- Existence of the email address on its mail server. We establish an SMTP connection with the mail server
for each address individually.
By starting with a clean, validated list, you will improve your deliverability rate and enjoy greater success.
We offer Email Validation as a service for our client’s lists too! We’ll take your current email list and return full
reporting including the current status on each email address.
