Getting Started

Create and account

once you have created your bounceless account, after your login you will land on the verification page, where you can start cleaning your email list either by uploading your file or simply by dragging the file you would like to clean.

we support the following file format: CSV, XLS, TXT

Email Verification Process

Bounceless uses SMTP protocol to verify the email addresses because it allow us to determine if the recipient’s domain exist, if there is a mail server associated with that domain and much more, without actually sending an email to the recipient. (We don’t send an email to the recipient at any stage of the verification)

during the verification process we use some other approaches to make sure you get rid of all the dud emails that may ruin your sender reputation, during this approach we use the following :

Terminology

Deliverable

A deliverable result means the recipient's email is valid. Bounceless determined this address is safe to send to within our 95% Deliverability Guarantee.

Invalid

An invalid email means the email address does not exist, for one of the reasons you get in the validation report(please check next section: Detailed result guide)

Accept All

Email address that always return a valid status, but from some domains that accept all email you attempt to send to them. Typically, these domains are trying to protect their legitimate users by telling the sending mail server it will accept the mail for a given email address, but then silently discard the message or send a bounce message after the fact.

Disposable

Disposable addresses are created to be Valid only temporarily so their owners can sign up for promotions or services without using a primary address. Disposable addresses will not perform and typically just take up space in your database.

Unknown

Bounceless will return an unknown result when it was unable to get a response from the recipient's mail server. This often happens if the destination mail server is too slow or temporarily unavailable. In some cases, retrying your request after about 5 minutes will return a valid or invalid response. Unknown addresses don't count against your verification balance.

Stamtraps

Spamtraps addresses are created not for communication, but rather to lure spam. In order to prevent legitimate email from being invited, the e-mail address will typically only be published in a location hidden from view such that an automated e-mail address harvester (used by spammers).
