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:



so each of those have the email address,, and

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?

Add a line like

user4: user1

to /etc/aliases

and then run


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