Redirecting all emails

Apologies if this has already been answered elsewhere.

Is it possible to redirect my catch-all email (not just individual mailboxes) to another address?

And is it possible to do this whilst still being able to redirect specific mailboxes to different addresses?

I'm wanting to put my email through Gmail, a different account for each mailbox, another for 'everything else'.

Thanks for any ideas.

Redirecting all emails

OK - I've given this some thought and got it working a treat.

1 - The thing I forgot to mention was that I have my own domain name - and that's the secret. You can't do this without a domain name.

2 - Register a 'Google Apps for your Domain' account at Google - https://www.google.com/a/ and set up mailboxes as necessary.

3 - Alter the MX records (through the PlusNet control panel) for the domain to send mail to Google.

4 - Activate POP access for the Google mailboxes. (In the Gmail preferences)

5 - Set usual email client to pick up and send Gmail. Instructions at http://tinyurl.com/aaa6h

This is working beautifully so far - my spam count has gone from about 70 a day down to zero and I have an automatic backup of all my emails. And I'm not subject to PlusNet's email problems. Cheesy
