Why do I get timeouts when testing given addresses


Question: Hello,

I am trying to test some emails. I'm doing that one at a time. Some are saying timeout and others are saying verified.
What does a timeout mean?


Answer: In eMail Verifier, a timeout means the server is not responding to a command. Indeed, the software waits a given amount of time, and if the server doesn't respond a timeout error is displayed and eMail Verifier moves on to the next address in the list.

This timeout can be changed from the eMail Verifier preferences. By default, it is set to 5 seconds. You can set it to 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 45, and 60 seconds.

Note that the bigger the timeout the longer it will take to test a list. Furthermore, if you are testing an old or low-quality list it may take a lot of time to go thru it with a big timeout since they use to contain lots of dead addresses. eMail Verifier may spend hours waiting for responses.

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).
