Local Exchange Server 2007 with Hosting Service Provider

Our organization has several offices in different countries. All users have the same e-mail domain xxx@myorg.eu being hosted by a provider in UK (OVH). None of any office has a local mail server, except in Cambodia where I am going to deploy Exchange Server 2007 as a local e-mail server. So my question is:

I would use a POP3 connector to retrieve emails from OVH. If OVH has a "catch all" feature setup which means that any mail sent to xxx@myorg.eu (where xxx = Cambodia users) will go to my single OVH account "myorg". Would it be possible? If yes, would it affect other users than in Cambodia?

Thanks

the way catch all works is that

anything@domain.com will go in the catchall mailbox UNLESS you have it as specific account on the mail server

so assuming you have an account user1@domain.com and user2@domain.com & catchall@domain.com

emails sent to user1 and user2 will go to their mailboxes and any other email will go directly to catchall

remember that for a pop connector, unless you are using SBS, you will have to go for a 3rd party tool

Thanks so much for shedding some lights. So you meant I would just ask the hosting provider to set catchall up like this:

cambodiauser-catchall@domain.com

indonesiauser1@domain.com
philippinesuser1@domain.com
franceuser1@domain.com

I am not sure by what you mean by that but you can only have ONE catchall mailbox per domain the others shuld be regular mailbox
