Is there anyway to forward all emails sent to an invalid email address within a domain to a certain mailbox? Instead of have the email just bounce back to the sender.

For example, a person's email address is jsmith@abc.com

but someone accidentally sent the email to jsmth@abc.com

Can it be set that the emails sent to the wrong address be dumped into a certain mailbox that I create?

Thanks!

You would do this with a wildcard or 'catch-all' e-mail address. You create one by leaving the first field blank when defining an email address.
