HuBuCo overview

What is HuBuCo?

HuBuCo is an email verification system with real time API and file upload, which offers tools for verifying emails individually or in bulk, in order to ensure that email communications such as newsletters or marketing content are not flagged as spam when sending to subscribed customers. The cloud-based tool is designed to help businesses of all types to protect their email reputation and avoid message bouncing, in order to optimize email delivery rates.

Businesses can use HuBuCo to verify emails in real time using the verification API and bulk email verification service, in order to ensure that emails are successfully delivered to subscribers. HuBuCo aims to reduce both hard and soft email bounces by carrying out tasks including the removal of duplicate email addresses, checking of email syntaxes, assessment of risk, checking of MX records, and SMTP deep level verification. Businesses can verify their email subscriber lists within the HuBuCo platform with automatic SMTP to recipient servers to ensure the email accounts still exist, and detection of catch-all servers and temporary email addresses.

HuBuCo facilitates the upload of contact and subscriber email lists in TXT, CSV, or XLSX file format, and verification results can be downloaded as a CSV file. Users can upload data manually, or connect with the HuBuCo API to verify email addresses in real time.

HuBuCo keeps my email providers happy

Used occasionally for 1-2 years

Review Source: Capterra

We sometimes get old lists from our system people and are asked to quickly turn email campaigns around. This service is a great first cleanse.

Pros
The software is inexpensive and very easy to use, very quick. The online support is super intuitive and the dashboard is pretty easy to navigate once you get used to it. The real value is that we are able to validate large lists quickly and ensure we don't have email campaign delivery impacted. They offer free validations for a trial, which is how I was able to ascertain the quality of their service.

Cons
The interface takes some getting used to. Other than that it is inexpensive and quick and there really is no good reason not to use it.

Increased leads, bounce removing, satisfied customers

Pros
The software is very user friendly, it can provide all the information for email marketer these days . The loyalty discount is such a great idea for those who have big lists.

Cons
Waiting almost twice the time when the verification comes to 99% for downloading the files. it would be great if we can download the already completed results that are not affected during the verification process.

Remy Glaisner

Generally ok, inaccurate in many cases

Used occasionally for 1-2 years
Reviewed 2018-10-05
Review Source: Capterra

The tool is becoming a way to eliminate the few bad emails of a list, at least according to results, but is deceptive at validating correct entries. Several mailing campaigns using proprietary opt-in lists labeled us as spam by entire organization servers because Hubuco failed at recognizing outdated or now incorrect emails. An immediate and rather serious negative impact for our business.

Pros
The product is generally easy to use, versatile and simply design which is a plus: you do not have to be an expert at email servers or any kind of training to use it.

Cons
It feels the accuracy of results has dropped: “ok” emails can be wrong (in over 20% of cases the emails do not exist and never existed), catch all” are worse (25-30% are actually “ok”, 25-30% do not exist).

Great Tool For Keeping Bounces Down

Used daily for 1-2 years
Reviewed 2018-09-28
Review Source: Capterra

Our application sends email invitations and notifications, and to both improve our UX and UI, and help reduce bounces and keep our sending reputation high, we use HuBuCo's API to validate email addresses.

Pros
The API. The daily free 100 credits. The overall quality of the results.

Cons
False negatives are too common. Valid email syntax such as "+" is always returned as invalid, which complicates the logic required to rely on the service.

Response from HuBuCo


Thank you very much for such a great review. Handling "+" signs in requests have been added to future feature requests.

Have a nice day.

So easy and so cheap

Used monthly for 6-12 months

HuBuCo saved our project - I needed to send out an email to over 7000 email address from a database that was over 3 years old (and has been sitting in the archive all that time) and to avoid any spamming issues, we need to clean this list ASAP. Thanks to HuBuCo, it was easy to do

Pros
I love how easy it is to use this service. There are a few options to upload email addresses including uploading a .txt file, manually entering addresses or using their API. The system verifies everything for you and all you need to do it hit the start button and let it do its thing. Another great benefit is that you are not charged for any emails HuBuCo is unable to verify (as valid or invalid) which makes it great on the pocket to - you only pay for the emails verified. The results are also easy to download and you have a choice of download all or only those valid email address. ADDED BONUS - Free 50 Searches Every Day

Cons
Oh - this is a difficult one. If anything, I would prefer paying for the searches after the fact. Sometimes (especially if you are only doing a once off search) you can end uop buying too many credits and end up with extras you may never use
