How to Verify Emails through Web Script

Important! To be able to verify email addresses via a script on your site, the port 25 on your site must be open for the connections to external mail servers. If you are on a shared hosting plan, you will not be able to use the web script because users of a shared hosting are not allowed to use the port 25 without the local mail server.

If you have a VPS and/or your hosting plan allows to connect to external servers through the port 25, you can use a web script provided by G-Lock Software to verify email addresses. This mode offers you two advantages:

  • you can considerably increase the verification speed if you put the script on several websites;
  • you can verify email addresses from **, *, *, * and other domains. The script checks your domain for Forward Confirmed reverse DNS (FCrDNS). If FCrDNS verification passes, you can use the script to check email addresses from the mentioned domains.

You must use the script taken from the Advanced Email Verifier on your computer. If you use the script taken from a different computer, you will get the “Unable to parse response from script” error.

Watch this video to learn how to upload the script to your web site, test if the script is working and verify emails using the script.

When you verify email addresses through the script, set only 1 connection on the Advanced Email Verifier menu bar because the script cannot verify multiple email addresses simultaneously. If you own more than one web site, you can upload the script to all sites and enter several script URLs in the Advanced Email Verifier Settings.

Or, you can rename the aev7.php file and upload many .php files to the same site, for example, aev1.php, aev2.php, aev3.php etc. Then enter all URLs in the Settings. In this case you can set as many Connections as the number of scripts you use in the Settings. And make sure you have enough web server resources to deal with a high load coming from the scripts used to verify emails.
