The basic search to start with

Go to and do a name and website search.

If we find and verify the email, you’ll see something like this:

That means it has been verified directly against the mail server and does exist.

The delivery rate of emails like this are above 97%.

The few rare occurrences when they bounce are due to full mailboxes or an odd server configuration.

Searching for a person and getting back a pattern guessed email

If the result you get looks like the image below, it means you’ve got a pattern matched result which has a 70% chance of delivery:

It means the server did not allow verification so we took the best guess based on the other emails we have for that domain.

The average delivery rate for these emails is 70% but some can be higher.

Also, all pattern matched emails are FREE. They don’t cost a credit.

Searching for everyone at a domain

If you don’t have a name and want Anymail finder to return all emails for a domain then leave the name field blank and click search.

When you get back verified emails for that domain, you’ll see something like this:

No matter how many emails it returns, you only ever get charged one credit per query.

The ‘everyone’ pattern matched emails search for Goldman Sachs are all free.

Uploading a file to get emails in bulk

Let's say you have a file which has a person’s name in one column and their website in another and you want emails for them. A file like this:

You can upload that file using the Anymail finder bulk search:

Once processed you'll be told how many verified emails it contains and you can click 'download' to see the results.

We also have an API for the developers out there.

The API docs start link is here, we recommend using Postman to test out your queries.
