As a system hosts more and more domains and users, it becomes
less desirable to give every user their own UNIX system account.
This system will however host 5 or so email accounts, that number
will not grow, and I'd rather avoid extra complexity virtual setup
brings (as virtual users for Postfix is one, and matching virtual users
for the POP/IMAP server is another thing).
To sum up: there is no way for Postfix to map "user@..." email
to "user@..." system account - did I understand correctly?
