Mailability Score

Mailability Score

The Mailability Score is a general indicator of the likelihood that a mail carrier can deliver mail to an address. Use the mailability score to obtain a high-level summary of the deliverability of the addresses in an address set.
Do not rely on the mailability score alone for business decisions. The Process Status code and the more granular Element Input Status, Element Result Status, and Extended Element Result Status codes are collectively more reliable sources for informed decision-making about address quality and deliverability.
The following table describes the Mailability Score values:
Value
Summary
Description
5
Completely Confident
Indicates that Address Verification checked and verified all relevant elements of the input address.
4
Almost Certain
Indicates either of the following scenarios:
  • Some relevant address elements cannot be checked due to absent reference data. Other address elements are verified.
  • Address Verification corrected one or more relevant elements with a very high confidence. This occurs when Address Verification finds a unique match between the input address and the reference data with a very low degree of variation.
3
Should Be Fine
Indicates that Address Verification corrected one or more relevant elements in the input address. Address Verification found a unique match between the input address and the reference data, and the degree of variation is acceptable.
2
Fair Chance
Indicates that Address Verification cannot correct or verify the address because of one of the following conditions:
  • Address Verification cannot identify a candidate match in the reference data with sufficient confidence.
  • Address Verification found multiple candidate matches with similar confidence levels.
The mail carrier might nonetheless be able to deliver to the address.
1
Risky
Indicates that Address Verification can find partial reference data matches only for the input address.
0
Undeliverable
Indicates that Address Verification cannot find a match for the address in the reference data. The input address is missing too many elements, or Address Verification cannot verify a majority of the elements in the address.
