I am interested in the "relatively easy to configure" details on using
sendmail (and whatever) so it "doesn't require a seperate system user
for each virt-user account".

Can you provide or point us to this information?

I haven't used linuxconf's vdeliver, but it does provide some usefulness
for sendmail. Is this what you used?

Also, I've heard of some patched mail.local(8) that also allow use of
separate passwd files and separate mail spools. Is this what you use with

Or how does your sendmail and/or delivery agent know to check a non-system
passwd file to see if the email acccounts exist?

(I already know how to do it with Exim and Postfix -- they are easy.)
