Catch-All for NDR Email

Hi,

We have a client that would like to have all @company.com emails that do not have the correct recipients delivered to a specific mailbox. Ideally a catch all for all NDR emails.  What would be the best way to accomplish this?

Regards,

-AJ

I have now resolved this.  Using the script here http://hellomate.typepad.com/exchange/2003/08/exchange_catcha.html, I have modified the "Catchall.cmd" and renamed SMTPScriptingCatchAll to SMTPScriptingCatchAll1, SMTPScriptingCatchAll2, etc. for each rule I need setup.  From there I have adjusted the CatchEmail.vbs to specify rules for each domain.  All seems to be working correctly now.

Does your client like wading through thousands of spam messages looking for the occasional one or two messages that might be useful?

Setting up a catch-all account is a sure-fire way to allow ALL spam mail in to your server and fill up the disk space in no-time.  Management of a catch-all account would be a full-time job.

I would strongly recommend against doing so.

I appreciate the response and we have advised the customer against this.They would however like to go ahead and do this anyway for a short period of time.  Any steps you could provide for this would be appreciated.

Thanks for the response.  I have seen this link before and after conferring with another technician, it appears we already have one of these mailbox sinks setup for this site.  It is being used to re-direct email from the previous company (which was bought out by the current one).  1) What issues would we have adding a second domain to a catchall and 2) We need to confirm that real addresses will go to their respective mailboxes and not be sent to the catch-all.   Thanks for your help!
