Default "catchall" really catches ALL

I had one account as the catchall for a domain but I noticed that ALL email for the entire server (two domains) was going to that address. Can someone give me some pointers on fixing this?

I'd appreciate it. Thanks.

I had seen that before but I wasn't able to find a solution with it. My /etc/postfix/main.cf has a line: hostname=mydomain.com. From what I understand, whatever user has the matching domain + catchall will recieve everything? I guess I just don't understand the instructions in that thread.

That's right! If you have another domain that's not in use for a web site (I always recommend to have a "technical" domain only used for server, but not for web sites) and points to your server, put that one in myhostname and restart Postfix.
