(This question is very unclear: which OS? Which mailserver? So the answer below is probably too generic)

Use alias addresses. The implementation is different on most mailserver daemons though.

So behind alias address "all@example.org" there are "jerry@example.org, katie@example.org, albrecht@example.org" etc.

In Linux, most mail server implementations respect the file /etc/aliases where you can store your alias addresses.

Okay, after googling I found that if you're using Exchange you need to configure a "distribution group". All mails sent to this group will go to the users/e-mail addresses in it. –  weeheavy Oct 14 '10 at 12:25
