Prospect.io verifies the validity of all emails adresses in real time when you:
- Find a prospect's email address using our Chrome extension
- Import prospects and use our Find Emails feature
What does 'verified' mean?
The purpose of the verification of an email is to determine how likely it is to bounce or not from the receiving server.
A bounced email is an email that gets returned to the sender because it cannot be delivered for some reason.
For prospects, this is often because the email address doesn't exist: it is thus invalid. It can also bounce because the recipient's mailbox is full, the mail server is temporarily unavailable, or the recipient email account doesn't exist anymore.
Our email verification system attributes a confidence score to every email address. You can choose the confidence score between 5% and 100%.
Less than 5% (our previous Disabled)
|Email addresses are not verified. All emails found/imported are included in your prospects list. Send messages to these addresses at your own risk.|
|33% (our previous Low)||Emails are verified and uploaded to your list only if:
|66% (ou previous High)||Emails are verified and uploaded only if they are confirmed as valid. In that case, we are almost certain that these emails represent a real account/inbox available at the given domain.
How can I modify the minimum confidence score for my company?
The default minimum confidence score is 66%. Your company admin has access to update this here: Email Verification Level .
