Any way to test email address validity?


I meet someone on holiday, and she gives me her email addresses for future correspondance.

I copy the address down incorrectly, but I know roughly what it should be…

ie. it’s either

and so on…


Is there any way I can confirm which addresses are valid, without pinging an email directly via outlook etc?

I was thinking along the lines of the “ping” command for IP addresses - could I send a request to “” and see whether it is recognised?

There are many e-mail verifying tools available as either shareware or trialware.

This is the one that I’ve used in the past :

There’s a solution here.

Thanks both, that’s what I was after :slight_smile:
