Verifying your email lists

Once the import finishes you will receive the Free List Quality Report with a score from 0 to 100 which represents the overall health of your email list and a Grade Breakdown.

To sync the verification results back to your MailChimp account, you need to purchase the verified email lists. Click on Add to cart, which will add the list to your cart. You can add all the lists you want to verify to the shopping cart before checkout.

Complete the checkout and that’s it! Now your verified lists will be synced back you your MailChimp account.

How to use the verified lists in MailChimp

DataValidation will create a Safe to send segment which will contain only the email addresses graded A or A+.

To find the specific segment go to Manage contacts -> View contacts.

From there, go to View Saved Segments and select Safe to send.

Here you will see all email addresses graded with A and A+ - our recommendation is to send only to this segment.
