    Nah, I've been using Zerobounce.net, their Data appends feature got me hooked. It's unreal.

    A lot of people don't have any luck with downloaded email validators, since it depends on you IP address to validate records. I coded my own on my website, It's decent and accurate, but I don't have a database of traps, abuse and data appends information like Zerobounce.net, but I am cheaper :) Depends what you're looking for.

    I uploaded my list of 49 yahoo bounced report in my EMS, these are all surely yahoo hardbounces.
    But turns out Zerobounce.net gave 27 email as valid and 22 invalid.. :eek:

    Not sure, is there any email verifier which verifies yahoo mails correctly?

    I noticed this as well and asked about it, earlier in the year one of the methods to validate Yahoo email address was retired by Yahoo. Now they are just as good as every other service that validates Yahoo in terms of accuracy. Before they were superb at it.

    They are still better then every other service at identifying abuse and spam-traps.

    I found Hubuco was better, with the same list I uploaded to Zerobounce, out of 49 emails, I got this stats:

    OK 5
    Catch All 0
    Unknown 6
    Invalid 38
    Disposable 0

    Looks like a difference of 16.

    See your PM - I want to check something.

    Thanks Ajiew,

    I used your file and got the same results from both systems with those yahoo emails.

    I didn't see any difference between the two, in terms of validation accuracy..
