How to catchall email to a single user mailbox in postfix

I want to set up a Catchall email address for a system we are developing. We're thinking on using amazon AWS, but I need to know how can I setup this. Do I have to install postfix (for example) in an EC2 instance, or does amazon offer a service like SES but for receiving emails?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Amazon does not offer such a service. You can setup Postfix to do so. – mailq Oct 20 '11 at 14:35

You will have to install postfix in an EC2 instance if you require a mail server - AWS has no facility to act as a mail server.

Amazon offer their own AMI (Amazon Machine Image) running a derivative of CentOS with a more up to date yum repository: postfix is currenty listed at version 2:2.6.6-2.11.amzn1.
