How to create a Catch All Email box for Misspelled Names, but having the Domain Name Correct. Does anyone know how this is done? We are currently using Exchange 2007, and the Ironport C300... If this is done in exchange does any one know how it is done, We currently do not have the LDAP Setup..... But I can do that if that is what is needed.

Thanks for any help!!!!!

If you're not using LDAP lookups then you've got no choice but to do this in Exchange as the IronPort doesn't have any way of knowing which is a legitimate address and which is not.

Exchange does allow you to do this, although I'm not sure how - Google should be able to help you!

In general it's probably a better idea to let the mail to invalid recipients bounce, and let them correct the invalid address and re-send. If you implement LDAP lookups for accept then this will work even better as the IronPort will bounce the message during the SMTP conversation - before you even receive it!
