Email validation is a process that verifies if an email address is valid and deliverable.
Email addresses are vital to your email marketing or transactional email sending. Whether you build a list organically or purchase a list, email validation is helpful to maintaining your database. The older your data is, the more likely it contains bad email addresses.

There are three options to hygiene your email addresses with JangoMail:

Option 2: Validate every list uploaded to your account
Option 3: Verify email addresses instantly with email validation API
For options 1 and 2, contact the JangoMail team to get the list validation process started:
- Submit a support ticket or email (email@example.com) to request list hygiene services.
- Please let us know if you need your data intact or just email address results returned to you.
- Allow 24-48 business hours for list hygiene to be processed.
- We will automatically add all invalid emails to JangoMail's system-wide Global Suppression List.
- If requested, we will upload your file to your account and remove all invalid emails. This will provide you with a clean list. Optionally, use our Scrub tool to remove all emails on the Global Suppression List to do this yourself.

API Email Validation Results
Below summarizes the results we return for API VerifyEmailAddress:
<EmailAddress>: This contains the same email address given in your API request.
<ValidSyntax>: This helps you identify if the email address is in the correct format. If the response is 1 the email address is good. If the response is 0, then the format of the email address is incorrect.
<Valid>: This response lets you know if the email address is valid or invalid. A valid email address will return “true”. An invalid email address will return “false”. Invalid email addresses are not deliverable.
<Corrected>: If email address was autocorrected for misspelling of the major domain name, this will return “true”. If corrected, the email address will display in the tag below.
</CorrectedEmailAddress>: This will contain the email address if corrected as explained above.
<Message>: This will contain additional details that help explain the response in the Valid tag.
<CatchAll>: This will let you know if the email address domain is a catch-all mail server. The response returned is “true”, “false” or “unknown”.
