I am a Google Apps user and I want to be able to catch all emails sent to   * @*.domain.com

Google apps does offer a feature called "catch-all email account" that intercepts non-existing addresses on a domain... But I need it to work for subdomains as well. Will it work if I add a wildcard MX record like "*.domain.com" that will also point to Google's servers?

  • I actually tried this, but with no luck. I've added a wildcard MX record, sent an email to "info@test.mydomain.com" but Google responded with "550 550-5.1.1 The email account that you tried to reach does not exist". I even have a catch-all account, but no luck :(( Any suggestions?

This is not possible to do, you can't use wildcards for sub-domains.

You will have to set up a catch all account for each sub-domain.

  • Thanks... Sad... Maybe any other "non-google" way to make this happen?
