How can you setup catchall email on Exchange (2000 or 2003)?


Just wondered if anyone knows how to setup Exchange (2000 or 2003) so it will catch all email from a domain to send you one or many users?

Hmmm, I'm not sure that's what we want. We have a domain, and if someone emails it will be bounced back with 'unknown recipient'. But we want Exchange to accept all email and send it all to one user.  It's usually called a catchall, but I can't see how you can do it with Exchange. Any ideas?

Thanks a lot,
You need an Event Sink. Microsoft have a nice article that explains it all:

Wow, that looks like a really handy piece of kit. I don't really fancy writing a VB script, so I will give the one on turbogeeks (LOL!) a try!
