Email Score API code examples
Our Email Score API is a restfull web API. Requests are done over HTTP or HTTPS, so it doesn't matter if your application is written in PHP, Javascrpipt, Ruby, Python, Objective C, .NET or any other programming language.
How to use our Email Score API
Using WhoAPI's Email Score API is similar to using our other APIs. The difference with this API is that you have to make 2 requests. 1. Send email for scoring (Set task API); 2. Check the scoring state (Get result API).
Email Score API use case
At the moment there are billions of active email addresses. Not thousands. Not millions. Billions! It’s hard for any software or system to automatically or programmatically detect if the user is a high-profile (firstname.lastname@example.org) or a low profile (email@example.com). Disposable and temporary email addresses are springing up like mushrooms after the rain.
We use WhoAPI to identify and generate indicators of compromise for further investigation. The information they provide are an essential datapoint.
