Hello HomePC,

It looks like you have BoxTrapper set to active on your account. This will cause ALL incoming email to verify before the email will be delivered to you. This way, you eliminate all possible Spam sources - unless they're actively returning confirmation emails. To turn off Boxtrapper, you need to login to Cpanel, select BoxTrapper (under Mail), and select the account where it's active and turn it off.

If you have any further questions, please contact technical support or leave a comment at the bottom of the page.
