Hi - great product!

Regarding the ValidateEmailAddress method in MailBee object -

1. If executed with the CheckDomain flag = 1, I would like to know if the method does its own syntax check first, and only does the domain check if the address passes the syntax check? [Wondering if we ought to do a syntax check first before trying the domain check...]

2. Documentation says: "The method checks email address syntax and optionally performs simple DNS query to check whether email address domain (the part after "@" symbol) is a valid email domain."

Can you provide more information about this simple DNS query with respect to "valid email domain"? Are you checking that an email server exists at that domain, or that the domain itself exists?

1. It won't do domain check if syntax check fails.

2. It makes DNS MX query to find out MX records for the given domain. If this query succeeds, the domain is considered to be valid.
