If you want urgent, call Microsoft.

You can't send email without an email address. If you attempt to do so, the message will be flagged as spam.
The email address could be a black hole address using the send as feature in Exchange. A black hole is a distribution list without any members.

I would not recommend that you setup a catch all as they become spam traps. There is no feature built in to Exchange to do catch all, so you will have to look at third party tools. Take a look at Mail Basket lite. http://www.turbogeeks.com/utilities/

Restricting what email addresses the account can receive from is not as straight forward as it may seem.
There is the ability to restrict who can send to the accounts on the properties of the user account. However you can only set the restriction using objects. Therefore you would have to create a mail enabled contact for each address, then add that contact to the restrictions on the account.
