working with SBS2011 server reviewing hub transports to allow email notifications from our TrendMicro and BackupExec software
I have researched and seen several different resolutions
want to make sure that I am specific
I only want these servers to be allowed to send email notifications to local exchange users mailboxes
also looking to see if there is a way to configure exchange 2010 to configure the exchange server "catch-all" email messages
all help is greatly appreciated

Further documentation on how to create the anonymous connector, see the "create a new receive connector" portion of this blog post: http://blog.mpecsinc.ca/2009/09/sbs-2008-mfpcopier-to-scan-to-e-mail.html

As for your question about a "catch-all"?  I would HIGHLY discourage using one.  There generally is no reason to have one.  You are much better off having your server reject messages which aren't addressed to a specific mailbox.  Don't be afraid of "missing an important email" -- if you sent an email and it bounced, you'd call to make sure you had the right address, wouldn't you?

If, however, you are looking to create a shared mailbox for something like info@yourdomain.com, then follow the steps outlined here:
