This is the very first check we perform; it must be a full and complete email address before we allow the user to submit the data. Send Shield also has built in intelligence to identify formatting issues of specific domains. For example, Gmail allowed email addresses that contain a plus symbol such as Mary+Marketing@gmail.com where Yahoo does not allow this special character in their email syntax. This is something that Send Shield can detect during the email verification process.
Toxic Email Address Detection
Don’t get fooled by an email address that looks legit. Just because an email address is a registered account does not always mean that it is safe to send to. Toxic email addresses can create destruction for your email deliverability. Conveniently reduce your risk of becoming black-listed by putting a layer of security in place. Send Shield goes above and beyond to suppress these high-risk accounts before the damage is done. We maintain a database of millions of toxic email addresses to help keep your sender score safe. This allows you to conveniently reduce your risk of becoming black-listed by putting a layer of security in place.
Spam Complainer Indicator
If you get too many spam complainers, your email provider can terminate your account without any warning. Prevention is always better than cure. Our goal is to help you reduce your spam complaint rate and build better relationships with your subscribers. So how does the spam complaint indicator work? Behind the scenes Send Shield’s advanced technology is connected to thousands of feedback loops across all industries. If a specific email ID is appearing across multiple lists more than a specified number of times, we know that the user is a frequent complainer. This way during the email verification process we can immediately pin point a complainer and keep your email list clean.
MTA and Domain Validation
Don’t wait to send your welcome mail out to identify a hard bounce. You cannot successfully deliver an email to an address that don’t have a mail server setup. We check to identify that the domain name is active and not invalid or parked, plus we check with the mail server to make sure valid MX records are active and working.
To bring you the best in email verification, we must make sure the user name is a real registered account. Once we verified the email address is not on any of our suppression lists, and we have identified that the mail servers are setup appropriately we make sure the user name is an active mailbox. An email address that was good yesterday might not be good today. The Send Shield technology boosts the highest rates of accuracy by never storing data. Each verification is a unique request, and is still able to yield results in milliseconds.
Custom & Partner Settings
Our smart dashboard allows for a lot of customization. Want to display a unique output error message to your users? With just a few clicks you can make that change.

Other email verification tools just validate if the email address is registered but, Send Shield goes above and beyond to protect your reputation. Xverify also offers free 24-hour IP monitoring to alert you if you land on a blacklist.
