Frequently Asked Questions

Here you can find our most popular answers about our Email Lookup service.

Here is a step-by-step guide to using our Email Lookup tool:

  • Log in to your TextMagic account or sign up for a free trial.

  • Navigate to Lookup -> Email Lookup.

  • In the “Single Lookup” tab, write down or paste the email you want to validate. The cost of validation is displayed beforehand.

  • Click on “Check Email.”

  • Our tool will show the status and deliverability of the email address, along with other useful information such as risk level and service provider.

To check another email, reset the date, or type in a new address.

  • From your TextMagic account, in the Lookup -> Email Lookup section, navigate to the Bulk Lookup.

  • Click on “New Email lookup.” You have two options when uploading the data:

    1. Import an Excel or CSV file with your emails.

    2. Manually copy and paste emails from your list.

  • After submitting your list, click “Continue.” Our tool will display the individual price, total cost, and estimated time. Click “Start.

  • We will test the email addresses for you in a few seconds and return another CSV file with the results. Click “Finish.” All your bulk checks will be saved under the Bulk lookup tab.

Both Email Lookup tools can tell you whether the email is valid or not. If you’re only looking to check whether or not an email exists, the free tool should be sufficient. However, the paid tool has a few essential upgrades:

  • The paid tool displays the results instantly. Validating with the free tool takes more than 10 seconds.

  • It also shows vital information that is not available with the free tool, such as status, deliverability, risk level, email role, and more.

    Our tool connects to mailboxes through “mailbox pinging.” Email address pinging uses a start machine (e.g., desktop/server) and an end machine (e.g., the mail server). The process is pretty straightforward, but many remote mail servers have anti-spam measures in place to protect from untrusted connections (like your PC).

    Our technology is trusted by most mail providers, thus making it easy for us to provide instant information about 99 percent of emails.

    Of course not. Our tool only pings the server. The email owner will not receive any notification regarding your attempt to validate their email.
