This is also known as a “catch-all.” This is a domain-wide setting where all emails on this domain will be reported as an accept all (unverifiable). There is no definitive way to determine whether this email is valid or invalid.
An accept all address is commonly used in small businesses to ensure a company receives any email that has been sent to them, regardless of typos. Additionally, these are also found in larger government, medical and educational organizations. Oftentimes these are infact valid emails. However, some organizations may utilize this setting as a security feature to prevent unsolicited emails.
SAFE : If you have a dedicated email server with your own IPs, catch-all emails may be safe for sending dependent on the overall health of your list.
DON’T SEND – If you use a third-party email provider that requires a bounce rate below 4%, these emails are not safe for sending.
