This field in Data Appending will identify if the contact still works at the location you have for the email address. The process is simple – we verify that the most recent company we have on the contact is the same as yours.

What is a catch-all email server?
A catch-all email server is also referred to as an “accept all” server, which should help you understand how it functions. A catch-all is a mail server configured to accept all emails sent to the domain, regardless of whether or not the specified mailbox exists.
Office 365 mail servers are mostly catch-all, therefore unverifiable by other services. For instance, the RampedUp mail server is Office 365 and is set up as catch-all, so any email address at the RampedUp.io domain would be accepted, such as donald.duck@RampedUp.io, mickeymouse@RampedUp.io or who.email.address@RampedUp.io.
What is a Deterministic Email?
When a customer downloads email records from our system, we run them through an email validation provider for SMTP validation. SMTP validation is an iterative process of identifying if the mail server will validate a record and if so, validating the mailbox. The process works like this:
First the mail server is checked to see if it is Catch All - meaning the SMTP results cannot be trusted for mailbox validation. Catch All servers are usually associated with larger companies that have greater email security. If the mail server is not Catch All – then the results can be trusted for mailbox validation. That is where the Valid / Invalid results are derived. For our purposes, we label Catch All email addresses that have been delivered to the recipient as Deterministic for a higher level of confidence.
How long should a list take to create? We recommend a 24 hour turn around time or 1 second per contact record.
