E-mail is a network tool that lets you
verify an e-mail address. This tool is
a powerful solution for the standard "message delivery
error." There is no need to disturb your clients
and friends anymore to check whether their e-mail
addresses are still valid. The E-mail tool connects
directly to their SMTP server and checks it for
you. Nothing is sent to the recipient.
You can use the E-mail tool to:
Query mail exchangers for the domain.
Instant verification of bad e-mail addresses
and invalid domains.
Gain more information about the owner of
an e-mail address.
To use the E-mail tool, do the following:
Select the E-mail tab.
Enter in the Address text box an e-mail
address you want to verify (for example, firstname.lastname@example.org).
The drop-down list shows the previous e-mail
addresses you have verified.
Set in the Options dialog box any of the
options you want to use:
