The API can return the following results which determine deliverability. Both GOOD and RISKY verdicts are safe to send emails to.

Verdict

Description

GOOD

The email address passes our tests and can be safely emailed

INVALID

The email address' format is incorrect or the remote mail server does not exist

UNKNOWN

Could not run all validations in time. You may want to try validating using webhooks.

REJECTED

The remote mail server rejected accepting emails for this email address

RISKY

The email server employs an anti-spam technique which doesn't allow us to detect deliverability. Emails can still be delivered but there is no guarantee it'll be delivered to the addressed inbox.
