How To Clean Your Email List With ZeroBounce

For anyone sending bulk emails, using an email verifier has never been more important than now. With the increase of spam, email verification is now of utmost priority for most of us. While looking for email verifiers, ZeroBounce recently caught my attention. ZeroBounce has a lot of cool features to help you clean your email list.

Email Bounce Checker

The Email Bounce Checker helps reduce the bounce rate of the emails you send. It can be really frustrating when you draft an important email only to have it bounce because the email address is not valid. This especially applies to senders who have a large email list, such as bloggers, internet marketers, companies who regularly send out newsletters and promotional content etc.

This is where the Email Bounce Checker comes in. It can go through your email list and let you know which ones are valid and which ones are not, thereby reducing your bounce rate.


The easiest way to verify your email list is to create a txt or csv file and upload it on the ZeroBounce platform. The email verifier will go through all your email address and get a detailed report ready for you in no time. Then, you’ll be able to download your report and see the results. Most importantly, your email list will be clean and you can continue your email marketing campaigns.

Spam Trap & Abuse Email Checker

Spam Traps are email addresses that don’t belong to real people. They are created by Internet Service Providers only to attract spammers and block them. If you have many spam traps in your email list and you send to them, it’s dangerous for your sending reputation.

This is where the Abuse Email Checker comes in. It goes through your list and searches for those mail addresses which are not owned by people and removes them from your list. This helps improve your overall email hygiene.

A.I Email Scoring and Catch-All Validation

ZeroBounce A.I is an email address scoring system. It rates a particular email address from 0 to 10 with 10 being the highest quality rate. The higher the score, the lower the bounce rate, which also means the higher the chance of your content being read. All you have to do is upload your email address list on the ZeroBounce A.I Upload page.


Once ZeroBounce A.I. has scored all your emails, you can download the results from the Zero Bounce A.I Download page.


ZeroBounce A.I. is especially good at rating valid catch-all emails. For those of you who don’t know, catch-all emails are those email addresses which are meant to catch all the emails that are sent to an invalid email address for a particular domain. When you use the ZeroBounce email verifier, it will tell you whether there are any catch-all emails in your list. Then, if you run your catch-all list through ZeroBounce A.I., you’ll get a quality score. If the quality score is too low, then it doesn’t make sense to keep sending emails to those catch-alls. You can then decide whether you want to keep or remove them from your list. You should always consider the size of your email list, because that’s how your email service provider decides how much it will charge you. It’s important to keep your email marketing costs under control, and with ZeroBounce, you know you’ll only keep valid, active and safe email addresses in your database.

Email Address List Append

One of the other features that I liked about ZeroBounce is that you can get more details about the email addresses that you have. For example, you can obtain missing data like the first name, last name, gender, city, state of your subscribers. This is pretty useful when you’re targeting specific subscribers while sending out emails.

Here’s an example below.


Email Verification API :

ZeroBounce also provides an email verification API. It also comes with an integrated Dashboard which you can use to monitor your email list with full control. You can integrate ZeroBounce with your website/blog if you wish. The API currently supports C# .NET, PHP, Python and Java. If you’re running a WordPress blog like me, then you can use PHP.



ZeroBounce offers pretty reasonable pricing for its email verifier. The good part is, the more email addresses you have in your list, the less you will pay per email. Here is a screenshot:


If you’re still not sure whether you want to opt for ZeroBounce, then you can always contact them via their 24/7 chat support.
