Exchange 2003: Forward / Catch all email from a domain to one email account

We are running Exchange 2003.
We had a company name change and added a new domain onto exchange as the primary domain (domain1.com) and the old domain (domain2.com) is now just an alias for all the users.

The director of the company now wants to have all emails that are still being sent to domain2.com to be collected into one specific email account and not have an alias for all users.

Can this be done?

@NimeshPanchal:  I am only referring to the 2 email domains on one exchange server. The company AD domain did not change.
Hope that's a bit clearer

Yes.
you will need to remove all the aliases from the user accounts.

Then yoo have two options,
either recreate all those aliases in one persons account,
or
see http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa997316(v=exchg.65).aspx dealing with non deliverable messages.

The problem with the second method is that you will probably find a huge ammount of SPAM (dependant on what filtering you have) as spammers often try to hammer a domain with common names eg John.smith@whatever.com etc....

Hope that helps
Cheers

@AndrewJDavis:  Thanks.. The alias idea is probably the easiest way to go. Can one use a wildcard alias at all?  Eg:  *@domain.com  or %user%@domain.com
