    check mail domain


    when user submit his e-mail , is there a way to check if submitted mail domain
    exists? I guess hat I can't check if e-mail exists without sending real email
    and receiving error, but maybe at least I can check domain?
    can I find on the net a package that can do it?

    Re: check mail domain

    There is no way to do this, at least in real time. For example, my
    company's mail server was down for nearly a day recently. During that
    period it "didn't exist", but that doesn't mean you should consider my
    e-mail address invalid.

    If someone is giving you an e-mail address, they will give you a correct
    address IF they want to get e-mail from you. If they don't want to get
    e-mail from you, they will give you an incorrect address. If you insist on
    a correct address, they will provide a valid address, perhaps one of the
    addresses that you send copies of spam mail to for somebody to take action.
    In other words, it is unnecessary to check e-mail addresses.
