  • Written in Python 3.7.

$ pip install verify-email

From source code

$ git clone
$ cd verify_email
$ virtualenv env
$ source env/bin/activate
$ python develop


>>> from verify_email import verify_email
>>> verify_email('')
>>> verify_email(['', ''])
[False, False]

Also, note that some emails will likely fail in validation, if so you can check the reason of failure using debug flag.

>>> from verify_email import verify_email
>>> verify_email('', debug=True)
