I am setting up an SMTP server on Windows 2003 Server for DR  purposes and by default the local domain dumps to a drop folder. This works fine.

Howcan I make all domains go to the default domain drop box. For example if I send an email to microsoft.com  or myisp.com I want it to redirect to the default domain and end up in the local drop.

If this is not possible with the built in SMTP server is there better suited program. I need to be able to run an smtp server that accepts incoming messages and dumps to a single inbox regardles of what domain it was being sent to.

You can register an EventSink in the IIS Default Virtual SMTP Server to drop all emails in a folder. The example in the following URL will drop all email with a certain attachment type in the \badmail folder but it would be easy to modify to save all messages to this folder.

The article title is misleading as it suggests Exchange is a requirement, however EventSinks work fine with the standalone IIS Default SMTP Virtual Server.
