Twilio SendGrid rolls out email validation API

Email Marketing

Twilio SendGrid’s Email Validation API, which was launched in beta earlier this year, is now generally available to customers with Pro and Premier Email API plans. The API allows developers to integrate in order to catch potential typos, inactive email addresses and share email accounts among other criteria that can damage your brand’s sending reputation and hurt your ability to reach the inbox.

Why we should care

Maintaining a clean
list is a critical element to email marketing success. Using email validation
services could play a key role in the proactive management of your list. Twilio
SendGrid’s API also provides marketers with insights behind each email address
it flags as invalid, giving marketers the reasons why the email address needs
to be removed.

According to the company, Twilio SendGrid sends over 50 billion emails per month. Its email validation machine learning model is trained on that data set and can be customized programmatically to fit its users’ needs. Users can also choose SendGrid’s out-of-the-box dashboard to inform their sending decisions.

  • Proper syntax.
  • DNS record checks.
  • Disposable domains.
  • Shared role or distribution.
  • Suspected bounces.
  • Known hard bounces.
