  • Verifying an email address

    A pal of mine wrote down his email address for me, but in spite of the fact he used block letters I still have difficulty in reading it. I sent an email to him, but have received no reply or an Undelivered warning. But with all the spam blocking I am a obliged to use, it could be it has been blocked, or along with the common practice of so many not having the decency to acknowledge emails.

    So I wonder if there is a way of verifying an address is correct without pestering him with an actual email

    Send a message to the address from an account that is not subject to any spam filtering. No, not Hotmail, you'll never find the reply within the deluge of porn and "make things grow" pills.
