Zapier helps to configure several services to work in conjunction with Mailcheck. With the help of Zapier around 2000 apps can get their emails validated.
Using Mailcheck with Zapier here is what you need:
- A Zapier account: create an account or sign up for free - it usually has limited features, however, Mailcheck will be creating a Zap that works with a free Zapier account
- A Mailcheck account (with the API key): In your Mailcheck Account access your dashboard, click “API” from the top menu, enter the key name and copy the API key
- A Google account: A Google account and spreadsheet in Google Drive, before you begin please set the following columns and headers:
- Email - this is the source where Zapier will get your emails from
- Status or Trust rate - Mailcheck Validation results

Choose a spreadsheet you require for the validation Choose the worksheet For the Trigger Column always choose “Email” Then, tap “Continue”.
Click “Test your trigger”. A summary of the trigger setup will be displayed. Peruse the details to see if everything is correct. Then, click “Done Editing”. Action section will pop up if every detail is in order. Otherwise, an error message will be displayed. In such a case, re-check the settings from the past steps, make the necessary corrections, then perform the test again. Now that the setup is correct, choose “Continue”.
It is time to establish the Action. Please find “Mailcheck” in the search field and select it
