Postfix & creating multiple mailboxes

Hi All,

I'm pretty new to Linux, and using Postfix. I was wondering if there was a way (hopefully easy), to create multiple mailboxes in Postfix at once. I have about 298 mailboxes to create, and doing them one at a time would well... take me a long @$$ time. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

You mean mailbox or maildir format?
Anyway this can be done by simple bash script. something like grep /etc/passwd (you getting users) - if you have them in /etc/passwd. Next do simply loop in bash. Something like for or while...
