POP email system setup help.

I want to setup an email system for a small company.
Their present system works like this:
They have one email address: setup with POP access.
There are about 10 people and they all use outlook to access their emails. They have set their MS Outlook to (leave a copy of the email on server) so that they can all view emails.

The reason why they have this crap system is because the owner wants to know about all the emails that come into the office.

My question is: Is there a way for to setup an alias for all these 10 people and still have an admin address that will receive all the emails that are sent to that alias.
i.e: copy of all sent/received emails sent by , are sent to an admin account

I hope I have made myself clear.

Any suggestions.

My domain host has a service called: CATCH ALL.
This feature allows messages that might be misaddressed or misspelled (e.g. bob@ instead of to be received rather than bounced. In fact, the catch-all feature will capture anything sent to your domain name. If you are a Business Mail customer, and have created multiple mailboxes, the catch-all feature will not affect the delivery of properly addressed email messages to those addresses. You can specify which one of your mailboxes should serve as the catch-all mailbox that receives all misaddressed mail (for Custom Mailbox, your single mailbox will be the catch-all mailbox). Note: You must turn on the Catch-all feature on for it to work

Can i use this to accomplish my task.

Let me know.
