Should I check the correctness of an email address I obtain through your base?
We suggest you validate the obtained emails. The base takes some time to get refreshed. In case a person, for instance, changes a job and gets new email, the old email may be irrelevant. Email validation solves this problem – just do a quick check with a Closely built-in email validator and get fresh email statuses. It's free, we do not charge for email verification.
