Email validation made easy
Fake email addresses are a big problem for busy web sites. Most form validation code merely look for a "@" and a "." in the email address. This is extremely inadequate. Databases get populated with bad email addresses, resulting in several important problems such as :
- When you are sending a mass email to your site's membership, a large percentage of these emails get returned, wasting valuable bandwidth. Many people do not realize, but bandwidth is wasted doubly, since bad emails are sent, and then returned.
- Many companies hire temporary workers to painstakingly remove these bad addresses. This is costly, both in terms of time and money. Additionally, this is a reactive solution.
- Users who sign up with fake addresses get to view your content or use your software without providing proper contact information.
