Email Domain Type Classifier

       
DetectsClassifies the domain name of an email address as FREEMAIL, ORGANIZATION etc.
            
john.doe@gmail.com uses a FREEMAIL domain.
john.doe@google.com uses an ORGANIZATION domain.
            
Note that there is not always a clear line between domain types. Especially FREEMAIL and ISP are blurry; freemail providers often offer extended paid packages, while internet service providers sometimes often a basic free email account.
