Redirecting non-user mail to a local address?

Quick (and likely simple) question regarding sendmail and forwarding/redirect.

I have a sendmail server setup with RH 9.0 with a number of users. What I would like to do is redirect any mail to non-users (ie. invalid email addresses) to a specific account on the system.

So, as an example: <- Valid User <- Valid User

If someone sends mail to any other address, I would like that mail to be sent to

Hope that makes sense?

I've taken a browse through a variety of man pages, read up on aliases and such and couldn't find anything that would help...

Thanks much in advance,
