Notes from ClifNotes, Jan 2008, permalink E-mail Security and Encryption

This email verification tool actually connects to the mail server and checks whether the mailbox exists or not.


What is being verified:

Format: "name@domain.xxx"

Valid domain: "somebody@new.york" is not valid

Valid user: Verify that the user and mailbox really exist
