I have a doubt.

Can mailbee email verifier dot net component used to detect catchall emails?

If yes, what is the code for that?

Does any body knows?

If you send an email to some autogenerated non-existent address at domain in question (like ad56dff348fgahn@domain.com) and do get a bounce for that domain, then the domain has no catch-all. Catchall domain won't send bounces for non-existent domains.

Processing (of ad56dff348fgahn@domain.com bounce) would be the same as for processing a bounce for any other normal email address.

Should you need more details, please post your inquiry at Helpdesk, making sure your maintenance contract is active. Thanks!

Alex

dear alex,
    catch all emails are those emails where the emails may not really exist but the server accepts the email.

Many online email vefification platforms like millionverifier.com has option to classify catchall emails and valid emails seperately.

if your component is unable to detect catchall emails , then it is a major drawback because people who send emails to valid emails returned by your component will still recieveing hard bounces from catchall emailboxes.

Above, I described the way to detect catchall emails. I guess online platforms you mentioned work the same way. No drawbacks here.

there is no way to discriminate valid emails and catchall emails in your dot net component
