After an email address has been analyzed, AccuValid appends a result code that will appear on the output file you receive.
The codes that are appended to your list provide comprehensive yet understandable insight about each email address. Use this to make informed decisions about deploying to the respective addresses.

|(C) Email address domain verified, appears to be an accept-all domain|
|(D) Email address domain is invalid and/or does not accept email|
|(F) Email address is not valid syntax; there are errors in the format of the email or the email contains special characters that are not allowed|
|(M) Mobile domain, identified as a mobile email address and classified as non-deliverable by the FCC|
