Fwd: only POP3
I give individual accounts e-mail only access by giving them a standard
e-mail account but setting their home directory and their login shell to
/dev/null or /dev/false. So, an entry in the passwd file looks like this:
Which gives them and e-mail account, but no other access.
I have a short question:
What's the way, if I would like to provide only e-mail service to the
users? No telnet, ftp account, only POP3.
It works with giving a fake shell in the passwd file, but how would you do
it? Should I create definitely a shell account?
