I have been asked to create a mailbox that stores a copy of all emails that come into the sbs box, im not sure of how to go about this?

An additional feature I would like to put in place is that at present emails that don't have an account configured bounce back I would like to be able to receive these emails into the new copy mailbox.

TIA

You can enable Journaling to accomplish this.  Journaling was added to Exchange to allow companies that have regulatory requirements to review all incoming/outgoing email.

I have managed to get this working by creating a HUB transport rule in the organization configuration with the following options:

when emails are sent to people (ive selected all user accounts) blind CC the email to another users account.

seems to work, but my other part of this question is how to i get the sbs box / exchange to receive email for accounts that dont exist (ie misspelt names or deleted users accounts that email still needs to be received for)?

can this also be diverted then to my catchall account ive created this rule for..?

That rule works if you only need to track incoming messages.  Use Journaling to track everything.

It has been a long time since I tried to catch mail to invalid users.  Last time I tried, I got thousands of spam emails a day.  What I ended up doing was to create a user for all my deleted users, then assigned the deleted email addresses to that account.  It was somewhat labor intensive to maintain, but now a simple powershell script to delete the account and add the email to an existing user would be fairly simple to write.
