Atomic Mail Verifier Tutorial - Bulk Email List Cleaner and Verifier Software
Atomic Mail Verifier is one of my favourite email list cleaners and verifiers. It is a really simple software that was developed by Atom Park based over in Ukraine. The purpose of this bulk email list cleaner is to remove all bad emails and clean your email list so that you end up with valid emails.
For example, once I scrape all of my emails using Yoggy's Money Vault Search Engine Scraper and Email Extractor, Scrapebox Email Scraper Premium Plugin or Scrapebox Email Grabber, Email Extractor or Atomic Email Hunter, I like to clean the entire list. For example, most of the above software has content, domain and email filters. So in essence, the content filter will only scrape emails from websites containing your set of keywords in the meta title, description, body text or HTML, the domain/URL filter will check to make sure that your keywords appear in the website domain name or url and the email filters will ensure that your set of keywords appear in the email username or domain name and that any emails containing words from your blacklist are removed. As you can see, these filters just narrow down the email scraping exercise to niche relevance and helps you to extract visually clean emails. However, the email list that you have scraped will most probably contain emails with syntax errors i.e. info[at]domain.com or domains and inboxes that no longer exist. If you are scraping very large email lists, a lot can change in even a few days. Business domain names are not renewed, people leave businesses and mail boxes are closed down. Therefore, to check your scraped email list to make sure that you have only working emails, I recommend Atomic Email Verifier from Atom Park. Scrubbing your email list is VERY IMPORTANT to save money on your SMTP, avoid email blacklists and reduce your email bounce rate. Why would you waste your newsletter and email sending allowance limit on thousands of non-existent spammy emails?
Let me know give you a step-by-step walkthrough of the Atomic Email Verifier.
This is the main screen of the software. At the top, you can see the option to use "direct connection" or "proxy connection". I strongly recommend that you use some proxies because your local IP address can get banned very quickly. I like to run my HMA VPN PRO in the background with a timed out IP change. In this case, I would just use the direct connection as my IP would change anyway.
I like to leave the common settings at their default.
If you would like to use your own proxies, you will need to select the option to "Use proxy servers" and upload your own list of proxies. On the right hand side vertical bar, you will see options to "Paste from clipboard" or "Import" from file. I just like to import my proxies directly from a .txt file (one proxy per line). You can test all the proxies by selecting the "check list" option. The software will identify all the working and non-working proxies, which will enable you to check only the working proxies. I like to use backconnect rotating proxies from Storm Proxies, but please note that they are no longer as good as they used to be. Most of their backconnect rotating proxies are failing proxy testing tests with every major SEO software such as Scrapebox, Yoggy's Money Vault Search Engine Scraper and E-Mail Extractor, GSA Website Contact form submitter, Xrumer and even GSA SER! The customer support has told me that the proxies are still working fine define them failing the test since the SEO software take the original IP address and they expect to come back to the original IP address but this IP changes to another IP because these proxies rotate! My favourite solution is private semi-dedicated proxies but these can be quite expensive. There used to be a few good proxy sellers on Fiverr Freelancer Site, but their accounts seem to have been deleted. I used to get 100 semi-dedicated proxies for about $60 which is pretty good. Another solution is to keep on Running Hide My Ass! VPN Pro earlier edition of the software that allows for automatic IP changes! I tried using Nord VPN but it does not have timed out IP changes so it can be a bit problematic when one IP gets banned. Overall, HMA Pro proxies are quite decent (not as good as those of Nord VPN). So, if I am running HMA Pro VPS, then I do not use proxies because HMA Pro VPS changes IP address in the background (when set to auto IP change).
I like to leave all the DNS settings at their default.
Again, I like to keep all of the SMTP settings at their default including the "Thread Count", "Retry Count", "Connection Timeout (seconds)", for HELO value I just tick the "detect automatically when verifier starts up" option. In the "MAIL FROM" field, just add a random email address that will be used for testing each email or alternatively, you can just add a list of random (real) emails and select "use random from the list". Emails will not be sent from your email addresses. These emails will only be used to attempt to send an email to your contacts in the list for the software to determine the response rate that the email exchange servers are sending and then decide whether emails can or cannot be sent to your contacts in the list.
I leave the following fields unchecked:
"Look up IP address (A-records) to check domain validity if MX records lookup was not successful."
"Look up IP address (A-records) to check email validity if MX records lookup was not successful"
I check the following option:
"Validate Yahoo emails by sending blank messages to Yahoo email account"
Note that blank emails are sent to Yahoo mailboxes only (without using Mail from Above). Atomic Verifier checks other mailboxes without sending emails to them.
I leave the Scripts settings at their default values.
I leave the filters settings at their default values.
If we come back to the main screen, the software can verify emails on three levels:
"Verify E-Mail Addresses" - this option will verify the domains and syntax.
"Verify Domains" - this option will check the validity of the domain names.
"Verify Syntax" - this option will check the syntax of emails.
Once you start running the software, you will begin to see "valid", "uncertain" and "invalid" email addresses as denoted by the green, yellow and red email icons.
You now have the option to remove all the incorrect and disposable emails. Right click on any emails and select DELETE -> INCORRECT and then again DELETE -> DISPOSABLE. I choose not to delete the Missed or Unchecked emails.
By right clicking anywhere on this pain, you can "Delete duplicates". However, when you import your email list at the beginning, the software will ask you whether you would like to delete duplicate emails (if it detects duplicate emails in your email list).
Go to the "Export" tab and select "Export Wizard". A box should pop up. I normally choose to export only "Valid", "Uncertain" and "Unchecked" emails in a "Text File". This way, the software will only save only emails (one per line), which I can upload directly into Mumara or Interspire or Atomic Email Sender software!
I hope you have found my tutorial useful!
