Creating new users

Hello all,

So I got a mail server up and running and working perfectly. I can login with 'admin' account and send and receive email through Squirrelmail.

Now I need to create some more accounts but am not 100% sure on the process. Ive looked up 'useradd' and looked through the process but saw that you have to set up groups and what not, and i dont really know what to put for that ><

Any tips?
