Anybody know how to do something for each new user?

I just need to run a script (which I can set up), but I need it to run automatically for every new user that is created. Basically, I need to make their maildir (and subfolders) whenever they are created. I thought about adding an entry in 'mandrake_firstime' in the /etc/rc.d/init.d dir, but I wasn't even sure if that would do it. I can just make a bunch of folders in the /etc/skel dir, but I don't see that working. Any help would be appreciated.

I don't think creating a maildir in /etc/skel would present any problems.

You could add a call to the script to the end of adduser, provided your method of creating users calls this script.
