VERIFYING EXISTING EMAIL LISTS

STEP 1

You can verify existing lists in SendGrid right from the BriteVerify app.

Once you're logged into BriteVerify, click the blue Verify List button at the top right. A dropdown menu will offer a list of services you can import from.

Choose SendGrid.

STEP 2

A new dialog will appear with several options. 

In the first menu you have access to your SendGrid lists. Choose the one you want to verify and it will display an estimated cost.

Another user input required at this stage is to determine if Risky emails should be eliminated from the final list. Risky emails include Unknown and Accept_all category emails and are preferred to be removed as they can dilute a marketing campaign’s overall performance. Simply enable the radio button.
