MailboxValidator’s integration with iContact provides users the simplest way to import their email list into MailboxValidator for validation and then return the results back to iContact. Take advantage of MailboxValidator’s iContact integration to clean your email list before running email marketing campaign as it helps to reduce email bounce rate.
Note: You'll need an account on both platforms (iContact & MailboxValidator) to get started with the integration. So head on to the sign up page and register for free. Once you have done this, you’ll need to upload your email list in iContact.
Once your email list in iContact is ready, login to your MailboxValidator dashboard and select “iContact” from the “Integration” dropdown menu at the left-hand side.
If you have not used this integration before, you will be redirected to icontact-auth page to insert your iContact login email and App password first. Click the “Authorize” button first to go to iContact login page. Login to iContact with your credentials, and then you will redirected to a page to create a particular App password for MailboxValidator integration usage. Enter the new password and click the Save button to save it. Once done, go back to icontact-auth page and insert iContact login email and the App password that were created just now. Click the Save button to proceed.
When you have saved your credentials successfully, you should see “You have successfully saved your iContact credentials. You may proceed to import iContact lists for validations.” then click on “Go to import page.” to see your iContact email lists.
When you are in the iContact import page, choose the list that you want to import, then click on “Import & Validate”.
If the email list is imported successfully, you shall see a message like this, “Your list will be processed and iContact will be updated automatically.”
Go to the Bulk Plan page and click on Bulk Validation, you can see the progress. Please note that the validation process may not start immediately as all bulk validation tasks are put into a queue and processed in the order that they were queued up. Rest assured, your validations will be processed when you have reached your turn in the queue.
Once the progress showed 100%, you’ve completed validation and the analyzed result will be updated at iContact. You can download the result straight from the MailboxValidator dashboard or go back to your iContact account. You will also be notified via email when the validation is done.
Don’t be surprised to see a new list with the name suffix “-mbv-clean” been created as it is created intentionally to keep only the valid emails.
