Anything that happens during a run of DOTS Email Validation 3 that causes it to be unable to finish its normal processing is an error. If an error occurs, something similar to the following will result instead of the normal/typical output: 

Example:



*Error!*

  <Type>Authorization</Type>
  <TypeCode>1</TypeCode>
  <Desc>Your license key does not work on this service.</Desc>
  <DescCode>8</DescCode>


There are four error types described below.
