redirecting a catch-all to gmail

what I would like to achieve is this : whenever I register at new-cool-gizmo.net I use [email protected]

all mail sent to catch-all addresses (there is no mailbox for these addresses) are re-sent to my gmail.com address.

  • How can I create a catch-all address on linode ?

  • How cain I create this incredibly useful kind of redirect ?

Thanks in advance !

You probably want something like Postfix's fallback_transport:

Just keep in mind that any spam run against your domain means a lot of emails coming to you..

I personally use postfix's recipient delimiter thing..

so assume my email address is [email protected], i can send anything to [email protected] and it gets sent to [email protected] which you could forward if you wanted to..

Atleast then they have to get the prefix right.
