Informatica Address Verification returns a mailability score which indicates the likelihood of delivery to an address on a 0 through 5 scale. You can use the mailability score to make informed decisions about mailing to an address.
Address Verification returns the following mailability scores for verified address outputs.
5. Completely Confident
Indicates that Address Verification checked and verified all relevant elements of the address that you entered.
4. Almost Certain
Indicates either of the following scenarios:
Some of the relevant elements of the address could not be checked due to reference data and the rest of the address have been verified in the process.
All relevant elements have been entered and some of the relevant elements of the address have been corrected in the process with a very high confidence. This only happens if the match was unique and the number of discrepancies was very low.
3. Should Be Fine
Indicates that Address Verification corrected some of the relevant elements of the address during verification. A correction only happens if the match was unique and the number of discrepancies was acceptable.
2. Fair Chance
Indicates that Address Verification could not correct or verify the address because of either of the following cases:
A candidate match could not be made with sufficient confidence
Multiple candidate matches could be found with similar confidence levels (multi-match situation).
Mails to the input address, therefore, have a fair chance of getting delivered.
Indicates that Address Verification could only find partial matches for the input address.
Indicates that the input address is missing too many elements or Address Verification could not verify a majority of the elements as Address Verification could not find matches in the reference data.
