e-mail users


I'm running SendMail on RedHat 9. If I want to add e-mail accounts (admin@domain.com, somedude@domain.com) do I have to actually create a new system user account for each e-mail address, or is there an easier way to do this?

It seems absurd to have a system user for every e-mail account.

Use aliases and e-mail redirects i think, it would seem silly to make loads of redundant users.

i think that should help you.
