Signed up for an account, ready to purchase plan after comparing multiple services. Tested one email address from a well known disposable email service and it returned as valid. The very first test. Emailed support and replied to the automated customer rep, neither replied within 10 days. Glad I didn't commit, if even a simple email is too hard to reply to and a well known temp domain isn't included. Unfortunate ;(

I tried everything on the market. This is the only Email Validator that works for an affordable price. There are no free validator services - forget about that. It is cheap and works great. Looked for something similar for years! Would recommend it to everyone.

Thanks to clearout for releasing a WordPress plugin, as I can directly link my lead forms now to capture only valid emails in real-time. The timeout selection is awesome good user flow! Love it

Used it and the word-press plugin works quite well. Did have to reach out to support because I couldn't figure out what to do with the downloaded file. Support was top notch and very helpful. Extremely pleased with this purchase.
