Email Verification Tool Recommendation

Recommended Posts

dxl

I'm looking for a tool/plug-in to verify whether an email address exists. There are many standalone apps available, but I would like to integrate the function into my Filemaker app. Can anyone recommend a tool/plug-in that will do this? Alternatively a web accessible form may work through the web viewer.

 

- Thanks

D

What's the purpose? Are you a spammer?

Send about 500 emails to all the addresses advertising Viagra. Include an unsubscribe link they must click if they do not wish to receive special deals or future emails. If you don't receive a reply then either the email address doesn't exist, or that person is too busy having a rock hard time.

The only way to do this is make the user respond to a verification process. Short and sweet, the user responds to an email generated by U... Weetbicks is correct. He makes his neighborhood proud with the Viagra 4 hour syndrome! Running up and down every street at 2 AM yelling, HEY, look at me, I need a physician!

I am not a spammer. I have a large list of 100% opt-ins and it's 100% CAN-SPAM complaint that has not been spammed. Because the list is not emailed frequently some of the people have left their firms (recessions do that) so some emails are invalid. These dead emails bounce. A clean list results in less spam. I'm looking for a Filemaker tool to clean out dead emails without sending an actual email.

 

Now, can you contribute some useful information and skip the hysteria about spam? Not all emails are spam and frankly, spammers don't need your help.
