One last important thing is, what do all these statuses mean which come in front of your Email. Well, one of the following four maybe the status attributed to the Email verified by EVADDON.
- Deliverable – The contact is correct and can be contacted safely.
- Deliverable (catch all server) – The contact does receive all the Emails sent to it but sending a lot of emails to it could register as spam.
- The mail server does not respond – It means that the Email address was ok at some point but currently it might be facing any issue like full inbox folders, server temporarily off or changed settings by domain owner.
- Not Deliverable – The address is not correct and cannot be reached.
