I want to catch all emails sent to * @ * to a single account, how do I do that?

I've already set up a wildcard MX record, and it resolves correctly. But I'm having trouble finding any email-server software capable of this.

PS. I'd prefer a hosted/web-based solution, or a Windows solution, since our farm is built around Windows-servers... But a *nix option is also fine :(

PPS. Google Apps cant' do that, tried it...
