Protect Your Business

A bad email address is a lost customer

Over 20% of your email database will go bad this year. Invalid email addresses result in unnecessary bounces, drive down your engagement metrics, damage your sender reputation, and cost you money.

How much time and money are you wasting on bad leads?

Mailgun’s entire business is sending emails. We send more than 250 billion emails every year, so we’ve hashed the majority of active email addresses. We know what’s deliverable and what’s not.

Plus, our quick Email Verification software is part of an integrated suite of deliverability features and services. You don’t have to worry about wasting time and effort switching between different platforms and data sources.

Protect your platform from abuse without sacrificing performance

Bot attacks can turn into full-blown DDoS attacks if detected too late. Are your users trying to trick your platform with grammar rules? Our email checker flags that information too.

Versatile Features and Smooth Integration

Verify both current and new addresses

Check email validity at signup to make sure you’re capturing good data. Clean your list periodically to make sure it stays that way.

Real-time Email Verification API

Verify email addresses at the point of capture to reduce invalid signups with our real-time Email Verification integration.

List verification feature

Clean your subscriber list of invalid emails before you hit send. Our list verification feature is as simple as uploading a .csv.
