Yes,

I used /usr/sbin/adduser to create an account named catchall.

And if I send e-mail to [EMAIL PROTECTED] ,
the e-mail does appear in /var/mail/catchall

Does anyone out there know how to tinker with the configuration of
incoming mail on FreeBSD ??

Do you have a user on your system defined as "catchall"?  I don't think
that you can mail directly to a file from virtusertable.  You might be
able to do this if you define an alias for catchall in the aliases file,
or you could add a user "catchall" set for /usr/bin/nologin.

Best regards,
