API Migration from Email Checker

This information is specifically for users migrating from the Email Checker API.
Please review the following breaking changes listed below when migrating from Email Checker to Emailable. Our API will remain mostly the same and likely will require minimal or no changes for a majority of our users. All endpoints will remain the same unless otherwise stated below. There are no plans to deprecate this API at any time in the future beyond the changes listed here.

Please note that Email Checker API endpoints will only work when using API Keys migrated from Email Checker. Emailable API Keys will not work with Email Checker API endpoints.
