Reviewing the details

The circle chart visualizes the types of email statuses found in your list during the verification process. The number in the center is the number of emails that were verified on your list.

The right side of the page displays individual statuses, along with the number of emails within a given status.  

The download button will download a CSV file for a specific status, or you can download all results.

Note: Unknown statuses will not be charged. We only charge credits for emails we can verify.

What do the statuses mean?
