help again - adding user and sendmail

i have forgotten how to add a user and their password from a terminal session. I am using red hat 8 server gui mode.

Can someone help please?

Now that i have configured sendmail (hosting own mail server) after i add a user what do i need to do to sendmail configuration on the server so that the new user gets mail to their workstation. The workstation will have windows installed.

man useradd

man passwd

If you've added an account to the Linux machine you don't have to do anything with sendmail, just setup email as normal on the windows.
