Experian Email Validation is a real-time REST API that you can use to validate that both business and personal email addresses actually exist. It also offers suggestions for correcting email addresses if they contain syntax errors or typos in domain names.

You can use the API in many different scenarios, depending on your specific needs. A frequent use case: you collect user information before processing their order and want to ensure they did not enter an invalid email address or made a mistake that would prevent them from receiving their order confirmation.

The API can validate email addresses from most email service providers. However, there are some scenarios where the API is unable to validate the email address provided. On such occasions, the confidence level and verbose details returned in the response body will help you understand why the service was unable to conclusively verify the specified email address.
