Verification status: this status indicates the validity of the email. It can one of following statuses: valid - you can use the email safely; accept all - the email server has an accept all policy which prevents us from knowing if an inbox has been set up for that email address, so the email should be used with caution; invalid - the email address should not be used; or unknown - Tomba could not determine the validity of the email, so it should be used with caution.
