A simple tool to check whether an email address exists.
What is Email Checker ?
Email Checker is a simple little tool for verifying an email address. It's free and quite easy to use. Just enter the email address and hit the check button. It tells you whether the email id is real or fake. Sometimes, it’s unable to correctly predict and say unknown because some email providers have put some limits and restrictions or they simply don’t like any verification checks on their mailboxes.
How do we verify an email ?
- First it checks for email address format.
- Then make sure that domain name is valid. We also check whether it’s a disposable email address or not.
- In the final step, It extracts the MX records from the domain records and connects to the email server (over SMTP and also simulates sending a message) to make sure the mailbox really exists for that user/address. Some mail servers do not cooperate in the process, in such cases, the result of this email verification tool may not be as accurate as expected.
