Introduction

Usage Example:
--------------

from emailahoy import VerifyEmail, verify_email_address

# to verify and receive the response status use the class
##############################################
e = VerifyEmail()
status = e.verify_email_smtp('test@example.com')
if e.was_found(status):
print >> sys.stderr, "Found:", status
elif e.not_found(status):
print >> sys.stderr, "Not Found:", status
else:
print >> sys.stderr, "Unverifiable:", status

# to just quickly check if an email exist or not use the shorthand function
