You should use a pop3 server that supports virtual users, like

Nou you don't, you just need to configure your MTA to accept mail for
them. If you're using exim you could add the following director:
driver = aliasfile
transport = local_delivery
file = /etc/vmail
search_type = lsearch
Then put the names for the users you want to receive mail for in
/etc/vmail. You'd probably want to define a custom transport though.
