Email Validator and SMTP Server


We are using the EmailValidator class and attempting to validate addresses to mailbox level.

A significant number of addresses are failing the validation because the target server is rejecting the smtp connection.

The email validation code is running on a server that is not an SMTP server. Is it possible to tell EmailValidator which SMTP server to use to make the smtp connection from?

I am having the same issue and wondering how to fix it.

I am not sure I understand what you meant in your reply. How is the DNS record used to define the source SMTP server? That doesn't make a whole lot of sense to me.

Is it possible to define a SMTP server to make the validation on behalf of the client running this code?

It's impossible because it's set by the DNS records.
