I thought I had specified a catch-all email account for my Exchange server when it was installed, but maybe I'm recalling incorrectly. Was it my SBS domain ? Is there a way to specify an smtp domain catch-all email account ?

Generally you don't want one... the practice has been rather discontinued because it's basically a SPAM-Catch-all.  Users have also gotten the idea that if an email bounces back to them that perhaps they really did have a typo.

Are you sure you want to do this?

The easiest way is to use a script that has already been created to make this happen:
