Question: I've tried running this software twice on two seperate lists. One was over 5'000 names long and today only 1'200. Both start out ok, a little on the slow side. But eventually they just freeze up and won't run. I've had to send to a coworker to run on an older version, 3.6.3 and it flies through the lists. Can you provide some info on what I can do to fix this issue? Or point me in the direction of a download link to the older version?
Answer: In case of problems the best is to reset the eMail Verifier preferences by clicking on the 'Factory Settings' button. Then you can try to use less threads, less retries and maybe a smaller timeout.
You can even enter DNS server addresses like:
DNS Primary: 22.214.171.124
DNS Secondary: 126.96.36.199
DNS Primary: 188.8.131.52
DNS Secondary: 184.108.40.206
Comodo Secure DNS
DNS Primary: 220.127.116.11
DNS Secondary: 18.104.22.168
DNS Primary: 22.214.171.124
DNS Secondary: 126.96.36.199
In the second panel you can force the software to use high priority MX server only. Note that the more retries and the higher timeout values the slower the testing will be, especially on low quality lists. A list is low quality when addresses in it are old and quite outdated. You can modify the retries and timeout settings from the eMail Verifier preferences.
Maintain clean mailing lists checking the validity of recipient's e-mails addresses. eMail Verifier can save time and money for businesses who send newsletters to their clients, nonprofit organizations who send bulletins to their members, or any person or business that needs to maintain a clean e-mail contact list.
eMail Verifier is your powerful solution for the standard "message delivery error." Email Verifier verifies every e-mail address from a given mailing list, allowing you to determine 80-90% of "dead" email addresses.
eMail Verifier works on the same algorithm as ISP mail systems do. Addresses for e-mail are extracted from a Domain Naming Server (DNS) and eMail Verifier tries to connect with SMTP-servers and simulates the sending of a message.
It does not send the message though - eMail Verifier disconnects as soon as the mail server informs the program whether the address exists or not. Email Verifier is a very effective piece of software that can verify over 10 e-mails per second .
It can verify single e-mails or huge lists. (eMail Verifier is multithreaded, providing high speed verifying).
