Re: Login Definitions
I think that doing this with aliases is the way to go. If you are using
Postfix, you can actually deliver mail to local mailboxes without having
local user accounts, thus avoiding the whole login thing.
And something like vm-pop3d
(http://www.reedmedia.net/software/virtualmail-pop3d/) will allow you to
let the retrieve their mail without having a login account as well...
In the process, you would most likely improve security as well.
