Email Domain Validation??

Former Member

Hello Friends,

Is there any possibility to check in Data services, whether the email domain is correct or not? Does Data Cleansing package help or any other supported package from SAP to accomplish it?

Appreciate your quick response.

Hi Lokesh,

Data Cleanse can take the following actions:

  • Parse an email address.
  • Break down the domain name down into sub-elements.
  • Verify that an email address is properly formatted.
  • Flag that the address includes an internet service provider (ISP) or email domain name listed in:
    - DS 3.x: The email file (drlemail.dat).
    - DS 4.0: The email type of Reference Data in Cleansing Package Builder.
    This flag is shown in the Email_is_ISP output field.

Data Cleanse does not verify:

  • whether the domain name (the portion to the right of the @ sign) is registered.
  • whether an email server is active at that address.
  • whether the user name (the portion to the left of the @ sign) is registered on that email server (if any).
  • whether the personal name in the record can be reached at this email address.
