Verify email address

If some unknown person gives you his / her email address and you want to verify whether it is genuine or not before actually sending an email, then what can you do.

One method is to send an actual email to him and wait for the response. If it gets bounced then it is fake, otherwise genuine.

But that is not a fool-proof method.

Better is that you head for this cool webtool to verify the email address here.

Caution: But I will not advice you to use this service, because the credentials of the company are not yet verified, and there may be chances that they are collecting the email addresses and may spam them in some way or the other at a later date.
