Exchange 2016 - How to setup a Catch All account to receive *


We are running an Exchange 2016 server.

Customer would like to ensure he does not miss any email due to mistyped email addresses.  Therefore he would like to have an account that will receive email sent to any address that does not exist in his allowed domains.

For instance.
Sender types instead of, it should go to some general account.

Is there a reasonably easy way to make this happen?

Please advise.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

if you have domain setup as authoritative, then any email sent to non existent address will be dropt. At the same time, sender will be informed that they typed wrong email address, so they should be able to fix it...

I don't think there is a function like the one you are seeking, but maybe I am wrong :)
