securing pop3



Hello all,

I need to make a pop3 account on my server. I intend to work with ipop3d to
provide secure pop3 service. Now I want to provide this service for only
few people, and I don't want them to have an account on the system. Well, they
can have a pop3 account, but no other access whatsoever...

I don 't like the idea of giving them an account and setting their shell to
/bin/false. So my question is: "Is it possible to create a pop3 account without
needing to modify the /etc/passwd file?"

thanks in advance,
	Kristof
