Diagnostics: This message is related to "Is Valid" and show reasons why an email address was evaluated as valid:
- Domain does not support validation (accepts all mailboxes)
- Syntax OK and domain valid according to the domain database
- Syntax OK, domain exists, and mailbox does not reject mail - the most positive indicator of the three.
Is Autogenerated: This indicates if the email is possibly autogenerated:
- True – Indicates a higher risk and other indicators should be examined.
Is Disposable: This indicates if the email domain is disposable:
- True – Disposable email domains cannot receive email and indicate a higher risk for fraud.
Email to Name: A verification result whether the registered name for the email address matches the input name:
- Match – Positive indicator
- No Match – Increased risk, compare to other indicators before weighting.
- No Name Found
Registered Name: Returns the registered name of the email address owner.
First Seen Date: Date when the email address was first seen expressed as MM/DD/YYYY/HH/MM/SS. Ekata considers older first seen dates as lesser risk, with an address first seen 90 or less days ago as higher risk, a date seen between 90 and 720 days ago as Established, and a date older than 720 days as Well Established.
Domain Creation Date: Date when the domain was first seen expressed as MM/DD/YYYY/HH/MM/SS. Ekata considers older first seen dates as lesser risk.
