Email users


Hi all.

Please pardon me if this question seems dumb, but currently i am reading on sendmail and so far my impression is, we must create users on the system (where sendmail is installed) for them to be able to access their emails. I wanted to ask that is it possible to create users for email only and not on the system ? Like lets say i want to create a user client named noony, who gets and sends his email to my sendmail server, but i dont want to actually create the user on my system ?

Is this possible or general practice ?
