Where do you want to create user in local system or want to use LDAP or mysql user.
It is all possible in postfix.
Do google and try yourself first.
we are here for help always.

User authentication in postfix can be done by various method , 3 I can tell u here.

>> Local System User : in which you have to create user locally in server
>> LDAP: in which you have to create user in ldap server
>> Database Servers User: in which you have to create user in DB server for eg. mysql

So you have to check first how in your postfix server user are created.
