What is an Accept All or Catch All email address?

You may receive the status result “Accepts All” in your report. Accepts All or Catch All email addresses are created to ensure messages that are accidentally addressed to an incorrect email address for a domain can still be received.

For example, you may be trying to reach Joe.Smith@madeupcompany.com. If you accidentally type J.Smith@madeupcompany.com and the company has an accepts all / catch all process in place, then that message will be redirected to a central mailbox that literally “catches all” extraneous email messages sent to anything@madeupcompany.com.
