Laravel 5 Package to help validate and verify your email addresses.

Note: This depends on the paid service from http://quickemailverification.com/.


PHP 5.5+ or HHVM 3.3+, and Composer are required.

Via Composer

$ composer require unicodeveloper/laravel-email-validator

Another alternative is to simply add the following line to the require block of your composer.json file.

"unicodeveloper/laravel-email-validator": "1.0.*"

Then run composer install or composer update to download it and have the autoloader updated.

Add this to your providers array in config/app.php

// Laravel 5: config/app.php

'providers' => [

This package also comes with a facade

// Laravel 5: config/app.php

'aliases' => [
    'EmailValidator' => Unicodeveloper\EmailValidator\EmailValidatorFacade::class,

Publish the config file by running:

php artisan vendor:publish

The config file will now be located at config/emailValidator.php.


This is the emailValidator.php file in the config directory. Go to quickemailverification.com, sign up, get an api Key and insert here

 *  Config file that a user/developer can insert quickemailverficationservice api key
return [
    'apiKey' => ''


With the Facades, all you need to do in your application is something like so:

 // returns Array ( [0] => [1] => Could not get MX records for domain )
 // returns Array ( [0] => 1 [1] => SMTP server accepted email address )

 var_dump( EmailValidator::verify('prosperotemuyiwa@gmail.com')->isValid()[0]); 
 // returns bool(true)
 var_dump( EmailValidator::verify('kkkkk@example.com')->isValid()[0]); 
 // returns bool(false)
 if( EmailValidator::verify('kkkkk@example.com')->isValid()[0] ){

 // returns a true/false if the email address is valid or not
