sendmail smtp addresses


is there a way to setup extra email addresses without creating a user for them and then having it forwarded?

for example:


sendmail_box_1:

user1
user2
user3


so each of those have the email address user1@domain.com, user2@domain.com, and user3@domain.com

I would like to make an email address user4@domain that forwards it user1

I would I do this without creating the user account user4?

Thanks

Add a line like

user4: user1

to /etc/aliases

and then run

newaliases

You should receive mail for user4 in user1 mailbox then if that's what you mean.
