What information does the validation report contain?

After our hosted email validation service finishes processing a list of email addresses, it allows the owner of the list to view and download a detailed validation report with complete information about each email address under test.



The report is available in either Microsoft Excel (2000 or higher) or CSV (Comma-Separated Values) file format, and contains one row of data for each email address of the list; every row includes the fields described hereafter.

Field Description
InputData The input email address, as supplied to the hosted email validation service.
For example: alice@example.com
CreatedOn Creation date and time of the item.

Validation result status fields
