Veryfing / Cleaning email databases.

12 replies
Hi guys,

Any recommendations for best software to use to clean or verify emails?

I've aquired a database of emails from an old dating provider but I'm not 100% sure how far the data goes back, some emails where registered 5+ years ago and just from looking seem as though they were 'dead' email addresses just used for sign up purposes.

What's the best software or method I should be looking at for cleaning or verifying the database I have?

Many thanks,

PS. I've only recently joined, so I haven't posted enough threads to post this in the Email Marketing section of the Forum. [edit: thread moved by moderator]

    There are countless options, but its expensive, and straight up, if some of your data is up to 5 years old, your wasting your time.

    Invest in data that is current and recent, it will be cheaper and perform better then anything in that database you have.

      To add to them ...

      Neverbounce (the best, perhaps!)
      Zerobounce (the second best)
      Emailchecker
      Emaillistvalidation
      Cleanify
      Emailmarker
      Bounceless
      Quickemailvalidation


      That should do for you.

    I use this atompark they have free trial.

    I also used this one: maxprog.com/site/software/internet-marketing/email-verifier-sheet-us.php

    However, I should mention, after the entire CANSPAM thing, ftc.gov/tips-advice/business-center/guidance/can-spam-act-compliance-guide-business one needs to be extra careful with how exactly emails are acquired, sent, and formed.

    For anyone starting their mail list NOW, I would strongly suggest simply using double optin, and not letting your mailing list go stale by sending them even small emails with few lines of common sense type advice at least once per month. That way you can monitor which ones go dead, or unread, or straight to junk, and remove them, instead of sending 2000 emails in one campaign to people who do not know who you are (even if real reason is that they simply do not remember you but have at some point agreed for you to email them) and finding out the hard way just how quickly you can get blacklisted and banned.

    Atompark products are desktop based and junk.
    Do not use this crap.
    Verifying and cleaning your list is easy to do, and good practice before sending out your own campaigns and to maintain your reputation.

    I know a platform that verifies your list as you upload (Email Marketing Platform) them so that you can then send email to all of them. I dont know if dropping links is allowed for me.

      You could just tell us the name of it.
      I am sure we can google it.

      There are ESPs that do this. However, they are doing it to try and identify your data quality. In which case, you want to upload data that is already cleaned.

    Also, keep in mind that providers after a certain amount of time turn abandoned accounts into recycled spam traps. So there is some additional risks of aged data.

    To the best of my knowledge, the following is still correct.

    AOL: 90 days
    Gmail / Hotmail: 270 days
    Yahoo: 180 days + 60 extra days for each year the user had the account

    Ask your email management-system !!

    Why?? Because if you don't . . . you can clean your list with one of the list cleaning businesses, and they still won't accept it, saying it "needs to be cleaned", so you will have just wasted your money.

    So ask your email management-system first !!
