Hi. My domain is abc.com. I have set a catchall email address for abc.com by going into /etc/valiases/abc.com and putting this:

*: admin@abc.com

Which means that any email sent to my domain that is auto-forwarded to this email address.

Now I want to do this for all my subdomains as well. How to do this with a wildcard? I tried this:

*: admin@*.abc.com

Doesn't work. Then I created a file in valiases called "*.abc.com" and put this value inside it:

*: admin@abc.com

This doesn't work either. Any ideas?

Why would you want to do that?
