We have made improvements to Global Email V4 that will increase the accuracy and quality of its results. We improved and added algorithms to improve the accuracy of “Accept-All” emails that will provide better accuracy for various domains that are considered problematic, specifically domains that are Accept All* (Melissa result code ES07). In addition, we will be adding a new field to Global Email V4, “MXServer“, to the response.
*Accept All: We were able to verify that the MX Server is active, but we were able to verify the mailbox.
Before the update, Global Email could only identify such domains, as they are set up in a way that does not allow us to verify the mailbox due to restrictions set by the MX Server. Even with a valid Accept-All email, trying to send an email to such an address was a gamble. Several large email providers get identified as Accept All, such as Yahoo and AOL.
By leveraging new techniques and methods, Global Email will provide more informative results – meaning more valid and invalid results – for up to 75% of Accept-All emails. This means that our users will be able to keep or discard more emails from their email lists with more confidence.
Examples of popular domains that will generate more accurate results:
- Domains with “.edu” top-level domain
These improvements will take effect in the beginning of March. This will be available under the Premium subscription for Global Email. No further action is required to gain access to these improvements.
We have also added a new field “MXServer” that will indicate which MXServer was used for validating the address.
- Accuracy has improved by 75% for Accept-All emails for specific domains.
- New field “MXServer” has been added to the response.
