Well that's just not true.  Any MTA worth its salt _can_ do this, but I
wouldn't say they all do out of the box.  For instance, debian's exim
install includes an alias that sends mail for the standard system
accounts (including 'nobody') to root.  On my systems, that's sure not
the bit-bucket!  root's mail goes to my user account's inbox.
