Overview

MailboxValidator - Overview

MailBoxValidator is a Malaysian-based email validation company. They aim to provide a clean email list by majorly focusing on detecting disposable and invalid emails. They have an email verification accuracy of 89% in our audit.

MailBoxValidator is good in API validation as they provide single email validation with fast results in return on all check parameters like catch-all, role-based, disposable, invalid, valid, etc.

Their plans are only valid for 30 days from the purchase; this makes them lay down with other vendors who provide validity of lifetime on all the plans. 

Do you have projects in Codeigniter, Laravel, Yii, CakePHP, Django, and Flask? You get a feature for the integration of all that with MailBoxValidator directly!

That escapes your manual process. Hurray! 

Do you face technical problems? They have a great rich article to clear your all doubts and problems through it while avoiding wasting your time on searching the same on google or forums.

Pros

  • Limited Turnaround Time

    MailBoxValidator can verify 10K email addresses in just 400 minutes, which is under the limit of the average industry standard, i.e. 498 minutes. It ranks 12th for its speedy verification process; however, it could not keep pace with eleven other vendors audited by LCA.

  • Free Credits & Trials

    This tool also stands ahead in providing free credits and trials. It offers 100 free credits after signup and unlimited email validation without registration.

  • Good Integration Facility

    MailBoxValidator offers a good integration facility to automate your workflows. Currently, it provides integration with 18 applications, including well-known ESPs & marketing apps.

Cons

  • Costly

    MailBoxValidator asks for $60 for 10K email verification. With this, it is one of the costliest email verifiers in the industry. It is four times more expensive than other vendors such as RemoveBounce, DeBounce, etc.

  • Inaccurate

    However, MailBoxValidator uses anti-greylisting technology; it couldn’t come up with a reasonable accuracy level. We found it only 89% accurate during its audit, which is less than the average industry standard. It ranks 16th for its perfection in the list of 35+ email verification vendors audited by LCA.

Hunter - Overview

  • Hunter is more of an email finder than an email verification service. Hunter is designed to identify and validate only professional email accounts. However, its email finder is a tool to consider for acquiring quality leads.
  • Hunter only verifies professional emails it will now verify other domains live Gmail and yahoo in bulk.

Pros

  • Fast Email Verification

    Hunter takes almost half of the average industry standard turnaround time, i.e. 498 minutes for 10K email addresses. When we at LCA performed its auditing, it took 250 minutes for 10K email verification. Thus, we can consider Hunter as one of the fastest email verifiers in the industry. However, it doesn’t come under the top 5 fastest vendors; it undoubtedly comes under the list of top 10 fastest vendors recommended by LCA.

Cons

  • Extravagant

    Hunter is one of the most expensive email verifiers in the entire email verification industry. It charges $198 for 10K email address verification. Apart from that, its minimum order value is also high. You will have to purchase a minimum of 1000 credits at $49 per month, and if you choose a yearly plan, it will be $34 for 1000 credits. Thus, Hunter is not a very affordable option for a startup or small scale business owners. It ranks in the 30th position in LCA’s recommended list of cost-effective vendors.

  • Less Accurate

    As per our latest audit performed on Hunter, it was found 88% accurate. If we compare it with the standard accuracy level, i.e. 96%, Hunter’s accuracy is not up to the mark. It acquired 19th rank for its accuracy among 35+ other vendors audited by LCA.

  • Poor Integration Facility

    This email verifier currently allows you to integrate your account with only five applications: Salesforce, HubSpot, Pipedrive, Zoho, and Zapier. If we compare this feature with DeBounce (integration with 100+ apps) and Emailable (integration with 70+ apps), it will be very clear that Hunter lacks in providing integration facility.

  • Few Free Credits

    Hunter offers only 50 free credits to its users during a month. During the audit of 35+ email verifiers, we found that most of the vendors provide a minimum of 100 and a maximum of 1000 credits for free. So, we can say that Hunter lacks behind in giving a total number of free trials and credits.

Advanced Feature's Comparision

MailboxValidator - Advanced Features

    • Syntax Checking: MailBoxValidator compares the email addresses with the standard format and validates them accordingly.
    • Free Email Service Verification: This email verifier can also detect the email addresses belonging to free email services such as Gmail, Yahoo, etc.
    • Disposable Email Provider Identification: MBV also detects whether the particular email is generated from any of the disposable email service providers or not.
    • Suppressed Email Checker: MBV can also find whether any email address is not a part of our suppression list (do not mail list). According to us, this is one of the very good features provided by MailBoxValidator as it helps you prevent hard bounces.
    • Role-Based Email Identification: This tool also identifies role-based email addresses, meaning those emails which do not belong to the particular person but the group of people, business, or brand. Ex: admin, support, sales, etc.
    • Duplicate Emails Checker: MailBoxValidator makes sure that your email list doesn’t consist of duplicate emails. If it finds such duplicacy, all the duplicate email entries will be removed. Ultimately, it decreased your cost.
