To answer your question directly, you can start here:

To answer your question in the form of a suggestion: 

1) Catch-all's are a spammers heaven
2) Not rejecting email to unknown recipients is very bad practice. How
are people suppose to learn if the continue to send email to the wrong
3) The sender will clue in that they have the wrong address when they
receive an NDR

> Maybe I'll have to 'persuade' the bosses to continue to reject them!

This will be the long term solution.
