I suppose at this point it's a lot easier to just setup some local
accounts, and let mimedefang add a recipient specific for the domain,
using add_recipient. No need to chown/chmod etc, mail.local will
handle everything for you.

You also don't need to do anything special to let the users access the
email, any pop/imap/webmail server would do.
