Atomic Email Hunter Features
A key component of an effective mass mailing campaign is the quality of the compiled customer database. Atomic Email Hunter helps create a high-caliber database by extracting information from websites and search engines.
Targeted search for email addresses using keywords
Atomic Email Hunter will help you to compile a database of your target audience members if you don’t possess a list of essential websites to search. Just specify a keyword, and the program will look for related websites and gather emails from them.
Search for email addresses on a specified website
If you’ve already got a website and you want to extract addresses from it, enter the URL and the program will collect all available emails from it.
Search for emails on a website by keywords
Target the search with Atomic Email Hunter. Enter the URL of the website and keyword on which the extraction process will run. The program will find pages of the specified website that include this keyword. Email addresses will be extracted from these pages.
Search in list
If you have a number of websites and you want to extract emails from them, define a list of sites. There is no need to wait for one process to complete in order to start another. They will run one after another. At the end, you will receive a list of extracted emails from all specified websites.
The standard version of Atomic Email Hunter possesses three built-in plugins for search:
- By the person’s name
- Within UseNet Conferences
- Within categories in the DMOZ catalog
If you want to increase the program’s power, you can use additional plugins. In addition, Atomic Email Hunter supports the Mailbox plugin. The trial version of this plugin is available after the software is installed.
Search engine settings
From 42 suggested search engines, 5 are used for search by default. You can select the necessary ones in the program “Settings/Search Engines”.
The program works in multithread mode. It can open several pages at one time. For process optimization, select a search type:
- “Fast search” – Extracts fewer emails and works faster
- “Detailed Search” – Extracts more emails and works slower
The speed of the search process can be increased by setting the number of threads, timeouts, and retry counts to access the website.
Atomic Email Hunter uses Internet Explorer settings by default, and automatically chooses the most appropriate proxy server.
We recommend manually specifying a proxy server. For this, you have to enter the proxy address and port number, your login and password.
Email address filter
The following advanced hunting criteria are available:
- Filter by domain
- Filter by URL length
- Filter by email address
- Filter by priority links
Filtering by domain can limit the domains to search in (URL must contain…) or the domains to ignore (URL must NOT contain…).
Filter by email address. In “Settings/Common Settings/Email Filters,” you can specify what filters must and must not contain.
Atomic Email Hunter also allows you to restrict email collection by link length and the total number of email addresses extracted from a single site.
Before the search process starts, you have the opportunity to set hunting limitations:
- All links
- Current site only
- Current and subfolders
- Current page only
The program will take these settings into consideration while searching. For example, the program can gather addresses only on a current page or site.
Ignore hidden emails
There are some emails that are positioned as spam traps. When these addresses receive an email, the sender’s email address will be blacklisted. Atomic Email Hunter does not extract these addresses.
Ensure the effectiveness of your future campaigns by activating the option to ignore hidden emails. It is possible to do this in “Settings/Common Settings/Advanced”.
If there is a need to speed up the search process, you can skip specific domains. This way, you’ll save time and increase the program’s speed. There are some rules for skipping domains. If no email address is found on the specified webpages of one domain, then it is possible to skip this domain. Thus, the search process is optimized by skipping dead-end email sources.
Timeout between queries
Some servers allow only a certain number of queries. Atomic Email Hunter offers the possibility of bypassing this number by setting a timeout, which is a time delay between the program’s requests.
If a server starts to reject requests, we recommend activating the timeout option. It does not work by default.
During the search process, you have access to an expanded log. You can view the links of pages that have been scanned, the time spent searching for emails, the number of extracted emails, and the page status. All the results from the Log can be saved to the Clipboard or to a file.
Partial results saving
All the partial results are saved automatically. This way, extracted and processed data is guaranteed to be protected. It is a useful option in case of a sudden program crash.
Atomic Email Hunter can export found results into:
- Microsoft Word
- Microsoft Excel
- Atomic products
- *txt or *csv file
Full integration with other Atomic products
You can transfer the extracted addresses into other Atomic programs in just one click. There is no need to save the results to a temporary file. Avoid the risk of losing any data by using the package of our programs.
