Learn to distinguish between a fake and an original Email id

6:19 PM By Pallav Jain , ,

Very often, in the comments listed on our blog or websites, we can find many comments having negative feedback/remarks for our blog or website.

But, what’s interesting thing to know is that most of these comments are SPAM comments, i.e. they come from some unknown and fake email id. These are done by some anonymous people intended to cast a negative impression of our blog/website into other people’s mind.

So, how can we distinguish between a fake and a real email id?

It’s very simple. You don’t have to take any pain for it. Just visit the website my-addr

It is a website that checks for the existence of Emails from services like Yahoo, Gmail and Hotmail.

This website returns an unfeigned result in most of the cases, but it doesn’t return a result for Email services which do not allow reverse Email lookup.

After you open the website, click on “Verify Email for exist” located on the left side of the webpage. Next, enter the Email id whose existence you want to check. Then click on Go.
