Is there a way to create a rule that would send all INCOMING mail addressed to *cash* to a specific mailbox? (The *'s are wildcards indicating any email address with the name CASH in it,

I have a user/mailbox named CASH@DOMAIN.COM.  I want all mail sent to my organization with the word CASH in the email address to go to this mailbox.  Is this possible?

    Natively this is not possible, but you can apparently create your own transport sink and do this:

    As Alan says, can't do it without programming, and it's not a very good idea to try using wildcards because it will interfere with recipient filtering and could be a source of future problems.

    Basically your server will have to be configured to accept any emails with 'cash' in the alias, even if they are to non-existent users. This could be a problem if spammers target your server and you will be generating NDR traffic. You run the risk of getting blacklisted.

    If I were you I'd look towards finding another solution.
