    Default How To check email existed or not

    Hi All,

    I have developed one web application
    in that i have one user registration application and having fields like name dob and Email id.

    if the user specifies any email id then we have to send a mail to specified email address. sending mail is ok.


    but before this i have to check the specified email id is existed or not
    i mean domain and address were existed or not.

    and if mail id is not correct then we will get a failure notice but i want to
    find the response if it is failure. not failure mail.



    How can i do it.

    Hi Raghuvasa,
    You can use javax.mail.internet api for checking the validity of EmailAddress like this below.

    Gothru below link
    InternetAddress (Java 2 Platform Ent. Ed. v1.4)

    Java Code:
    [B]InternetAddress address = new InternetAddress("specify the address");
    
    address.validate();[/B]

    If you mean whether an email address exists (ie does blah@blah.com exist), you can't. There's no reliable method for doing that.

    Send a validation email with some kind of secure generated code that the user must then enter.

    Of course, won't work with one-time email addresses.
