Not sure if your lists need a clean? With Mailgun, you won't spend your money if you don't need the service. Bulk Preview runs bulk validations on a statistically significant random sample of your list for free. Once run, we show you the sample result so you can decide if you need Validations to clean your list or not.

Validation based on billions of sent emails

RFC states the formal rules for email addresses. However, in the real world ESPs accept addresses that are not RFC-valid, and reject addresses that are.

When we built our validator, we did based on real-world data + RFC spec to ensure more accurate validation.


Custom ESP grammar

All major ESPs have their own set up custom grammar that impact whether an email address is valid in the real world.

We’ve integrated custom grammar checks for Gmail, Hotmail, and Yahoo into our email validator and are always adding more custom grammar checks as we discover these rules.
