Are you tired of sending emails to non-existent addresses? Kickbox, an email verification service, recommends testing email addresses before sending to increase deliverability rates and prevent bouncing. Bounced emails hurt your sender reputation and can lead to email providers blocking your messages from reaching inboxes. Kickbox offers an Email Verification API and Email Verification Batch service for easy email testing. The process involves sending a “ping” to the email server to see if it exists and is active. This simple step can save you time and prevent frustration in the long run. Don’t let your emails go to waste, test before you send!
