HI @tomanderson412

 

Thank you for your post. There is a way to create a catchall on Office 365 but the process is very complicated and requires admin permissions.

 

Here are the steps to create a catch all, I have tested this on my own test account and seems to work without issue.

 

This is the direct 3rd party article:

http://www.yourithelp.co.uk/office-365-create-catchall-wildcard-address-office-365/

 

This is my updated steps as some of the beginning steps will be different:

 

Setup Catch-All O365

These steps require admin access to Exchange Admin
Center. To access the the Exchange Admin Center, and
Admin address must first go to
outlook.office365.com and sign in with the admin
email address.
After sign-in, change the URL to
outlook.office365.com/ecp

After Accessing ECP
(1) Click “Mail Flow” icon
(2) Click “Accepted Domains”
(3) Highlight your vanity domain and then click the
pen (edit) button
(4) Change the pop-up from “Authoritative” to
“Internal Relay”
(5) Click SAVE
Ignore any warning about needing to set up
transport rules.

 

(1) Click “Mail Flow” icon
(2) Click “Rules”
(3) Click the “+” icon, then “Create a new rule”
As soon as the new rule box appears, click “More
Options…” link towards the bottom of the page
(4) Give rule a name, e.g. Catchal
(5) Change the “apply this rule if…” to “The Sender
is…”–>”Internal/External”–>”Outside this
organisation”
(6) Change the “do the following…” to “Redirect the
message to…”–>”These recipients”–> then select your
catch-all mailbox
(7) *OPTIONAL* Click “Add Action” and then “Modify
the message properties”–>”Set a message header”,
then set the header to “X-Catchall-Rule” and value
to “Yes”
(8) Under “Except if”, Click “Add action” and then
“If Recipient…”–>”Is this person”–>and select the
“all” Group which contains all exclusions (note –
image above incorrectly shows an exclusion of
CatchAllMailbox – this should be the “All” group
which contains all users/groups INCLUDING the
Catchall mailbox/group that you don’t want
diverted)

 

Please keep in mind that the steps above are only for educational use and should be followed at your own risk. We do not offer any internal support or guidance for any of the information above and cannot guarantee its accuracy. 

 

Best Wishes!
