      The URLS says:

      As a system hosts more and more domains and users, it becomes
      less desirable to give every user their own UNIX system account.

      I agree.

      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?
