How to redirect email from a nonexistent account to my gmail account?

Hi everybody. I want to create an alias for my gmail account. Gmail requires that you use an existent account  but I need an account with a tld .al and the domain name I need is already taken. Gmail needs to verify that the address is mine so it send a verification email to it. In case I specify a nonexistent address and gmail sends a verification email to it, would it be possible for me to catch this email? I am not trying to do anything illegal, I just need an address of the type name@fie.upt.al.

If you manage the domain, you can create a catch all account and any mail that is sent to a particular account that doesn't exist, will be sent there. haha.

I thought the object button was to object to the close process.

Lulesh, I'm sorry if I my remark came across as offensive, it was silly of me.
I was just trying to make light of the fact you were suggesting was infact  illegally (intercept an email address that was owned by someone else)
sorry again.
