Re: OT: e-mail question
If the accounts are dependent on a system user account there can only be one
webmaster account. Of course, an alias
can be setup that points email@example.com to a different local
system user like webmaster2. With some
e-mail systems I've seen (Windows based) the full e-mail address is used as
the account name instead of a system user
account. So, in the client the pop3 user would be setup as
firstname.lastname@example.org instead of just webmaster. Get
what I'm saying? :-)
