MailerLite email verification options using mailfloss

If you’re using mailfloss for MailerLite email verification, you have four options at your disposal.

Before explaining the four options, make sure you have properly connected MailerLite to mailfloss. You only need to do this once and from then on mailfloss will be able to automatically perform email verifications for the connected MailerLite account.

Here’s a screenshot of the four options you have with MailerLite email validation:

The first option “Manually decide action on invalid emails” will display emails deemed invalid so you can decide an action on them, like so:

With manual mode set, you can later decide to update custom fields, unsubscribe, ignore, or report the status as incorrect for all contacts mailfloss determined as invalid.

The second option “Unsubscribe invalid emails” will unsubscribe the contact from MailerLite and remove the contact from the lists it belongs to. This action is irreversible. You’ll see the contact in MailerLite in red and marked as unsubscribed from receiving emails.

The third option is a little more advanced and intended for advanced users. It will update custom fields inside of MailerLite, which you can use to sync with your other databases and CRMs or do whatever you please with them.

The final option is “do nothing”. Basically, all this option does is send you an email report of the latest floss session, but doesn’t actually change anything inside of MailerLite or mailfloss. This is most like boring, traditional email validation services, but is useful if you just want a report of the email verification statuses determined by mailfloss for the connected MailerLite account and nothing more.
