Verify Email Addresses

Most sites already check the correct synax so they reject "asdasd" entered as an email address, but what if the syntax is correct but invalid - nobody@grath.co.uk (mis-spelled), or what about if the database gets out of date and a previously valid email address expires (AOL or Hotmail for example).

We can supply code (PHP, not Javascript) that will check if nobody@grath.co.uk is valid. If you can tell it's false, you don't need to bother sending emails there or you can reject it.

Try entering an email adress here (we won't record it - honest!). Click submit and we'll check if it's valid or invalid.


The code contacts the alleged mail server and asks if the mail address will be accepted. (This is why the code is sometimes slow and you should think about how it's used).
