Laravel package for checking email address is exist or not in real world
Email Checker was created and maintained by Aman Nurani. It provides a powerful email validating system for both development and production for Laravel. It uses fsockopen(), cURL and many more to validate email address exists or not in real world.
Nowadays most of websites are using registration process where they need to verify user's ownership. Mostly developers verify email by sending email verification link to the email, So this will store extra email in database (if they were not exists in real). Additionally some people use disposable emails for temporary usage.
To get the latest version, simply require the project using Composer:
$ composer require aman00323/emailchecker
Once installed, You need to include
Aman\EmailVerifier\EmailChecker to access methods for email verify.
Added new option to check disposable emails
This option is part of checkDisposableEmail() method, you need to pass second argument as true.
When you pass true inside helper will check emails with list of dispossable. which are hosted on gist, So whenever list will be changed you would't have to update package.
This email verification will be done on the basis of disposable emails list, This function will check if entered email address is in the list of disposable or not.
For better output you need to set from email address for this method
OR Set ENV variable in your .env
If this method will successfully extract records, then it will try to send HELLO message on the email address using fsockopen(), if it get valid status from MAIL server then it will return true. Also function will return true if it is not verify with the detail message.
This will return array with success and details, Details will indicate email verified with any exception or not.
For better output your server needs to support fsockopen().
Sometime it is hard to identify that email exist or not based on DNS and MX Records, So this method will check the domain status using cURL.
This method ensures that email which is given has valid domain.
This method will return TRUE or FALSE, if it successfully get response then it will return TRUE. Response validates based on HTTP Status Code.
This method will use all of the methods and it gives detail response, if it gives TRUE.
If any of the method will respond with FALSE then will not give detail report.
As we have added new option with checkDisposableEmail() which has second argument that will enable deep check to compare domain with large list.
Don't worry it would't take too much time. 😄
All are different method you can use individually as per your requirement. To call all of the method at once use Check Email
Please let add your ideas to improve this package.
All contributer are welcome, Code must follow PSR2. create feature branch to compare with email checker. Your code must pass testcases.
NOTE : This package will not ensure to verify each and email address, some of them cannot be verify due to MAIL server securities.
