But SIMS requires a postmaster account

This is because the RFCs require postmaster for all domains that receive mail.

But the RFC does not require that there be a 'postmaster' account.

Yes, they do.  postmaster@<doamin.tld> must exist (that is, accept mail) for all domains that receive or send mail

In my case, I routed mail for 'postmaster' to another account -- it would be received. SIMS nonetheless recreated the missing postmaster account.

the sims app can't know about your routing table,a nd if you change your routing table, there has to be a postmaster account to receive the mail.
