How to clean an old email list?

Discussion in 'General Business' started by Marius9595, Sep 4, 2017.

    I have an old email list and i want to reactivate it. The problem is with invalid emails which I want to check for not having a high bounce rate. So I'm looking for software to cleanup this list. After comparing multiple platforms, I came to the conclusion that zerobounce email validation system , is the best one. Do you think it's a good choice?

    Thank you all,
    M.

    These guys do their tests manually which won't be very efficient: https://tools.verifyemailaddress.io/Articles/Ping/How_To_Ping_Email_Address/

    I used to test emails about 15 years ago and the methods probably still exist - they were just what the article describes but programmed into php so you could query the database and loop through the results.

    These days all our email sending is through Mandrill and we let them take charge of that stuff. Their webhooks tell us when we need to do something.

    Is there a way to cheaply validate email addresses for deliverability?

    Hello, Marcus,
    I use zerobounce email validation system. It's very effective, cheap and it also comes with an easy to use API. Moreover, it’s simply the best and has the richest dataset of returned information to make actionable decisions on.

    Try NeverBounce. Seems a good one to try.

    I have a subscriber list of about 4 months. The problem is that the delivery rate is below 60% and do not understand the reasons for which this occurs.

    I'm looking forward to your answers.

    Thank you,
    Marcus.

    It's very
    It's very obvious that you are just creating posts that you can then later mention (promote) the list cleaning service that you do in all your posts.

    There's no excuse for having such poor deliverability. You need to cull the bad emails and accept that people have moved on.
