How would I set up a catch all email address? For example I have setup support@mydomain.com as an address, but if someone sends an email addressed to webmaster@mydomain.com I want that email to be forwarded to a specified email address.

You can create a catch-all email address by using an * before the @ symbol when creating in the control panel.

i would like to add an additional question: will the catch all then also catch the emails that has already been created via the control panel, or only emails that are not listed in the control panel?

If the email address is listed in the Control Panel then any mail to that address would not be delivered to the catch all.

ie. if bob@example.com is set up in the Control Panel then email to that address would not be included in *@example.com.
