This connector creates a Marketo flow action to validate email addresses using ZeroBounce.
ZeroBounce is an email validation and deliverability platform. A four-time Inc. 5000 honoree, ZeroBounce helps more than 200,000 customers land their emails in the inbox. ZeroBounce removes invalid email addresses, eliminates bounces, validates IP addresses and verifies key recipient demographics.
ZeroBounce also offers a suite of deliverability and list enhancement tools: an email server tester, an inbox placement tester and a blacklist monitoring tool. Activity Data, ZeroBounce’s newest feature, identifies subscribers who’ve had email activity in the past year.
The flow action sends the email address to ZeroBounce for validation. When validated the following fields are returned to Marketo and may be mapped and stored in the person record.
|address||The email address you are validating.|
|status||[valid, invalid, catch-all, unknown, spamtrap, abuse, do_not_mail]|
|sub_status||[antispam_system, greylisted, mail_server_temporary_error, forcible_disconnect, mail_server_did_not_respond, timeout_exceeded, failed_smtp_connection, mailbox_quota_exceeded, exception_occurred, possible_trap, role_based, global_suppression, mailbox_not_found, no_dns_entries, failed_syntax_check, possible_typo, unroutable_ip_address, leading_period_removed, does_not_accept_mail, alias_address, role_based_catch_all, disposable, toxic]|
