Some of the factors used to determine validity of an e-mail address are as follows :

  • Format Validation : DEVA ensures that e-mail address is valid. Ex : e-mail addresses with missing @ are not valid.
  • MX Records’ Existence : DEVA validates that MX records exist for the domain tied to the e-mail address.
  • Disposable/Temporary Email Address detection : DEVA maintains a list of throwaway/disposable email addresses or junk collector email addresses and validates emails against this list. Ex : will be invalid.
  • ESP (Email Service Provider) Grammar Rules: Ex : e-mails cannot have user part less than 4 characters. We learn new ESP grammar rules every now and then and incorporate into our validation algorithm.
  • Spam Email Address detection : DEVA has access to a gigantic third party database of email addresses known to spam. It queries this database to determine the validity of the email address. Ex : is one such email address that is known to spam.
  • Profanity Check : This is a distinguishing feature of DEVA. It checks e-mail addresses for profanities and marks them invalid if found.
  • Role Based Email Address detection : DEVA detects generic group role based email addresses like info@, support@, store@, etc and marks such emails as invalid.
  • Patterns : There are countless patterns we discovered while validating over 50,000 e-mails every month for our clients that are obviously invalid e-mails. Ex :,,, etc. DEVA is constantly learning and building up the black listed patterns as our user base grows.
  • Blacklisted Domains : Ex: is reserved and can’t be used in practice. Therefore, all e-mails having this domain are marked invalid by DEVA.
