You are correct, WorkGroup Manager does a nice job of handling system
account setup.

But I don't want to have to make system accounts for ever email box that
I want to exist. Plus I have tons of wildcard addresses (ie: cgi-*) that
all map to the same email box. I use these extensively and really can't
live without them. Currently, using OS X's Postfix interface, there is no
way to do these.

My understanding is the same, Postfix can use "virtual" accounts instead,
either via a SQL database, or just from a text file. However, OS X
doesn't have an interface to do those. There may be good 3rd party webmin
tools to do it, and I haven't ruled out Postfix because I haven't had a
chance to look into these 3rd party tools.

And there is the rub, and what keeps me here with SIMS. Time. I lack the
time to invest trying to recreate a system that I already have running
just fine. It is a goal of mine some day to move off SIMS, but it is a
project that keeps getting pushed down to the bottom of the list as more
important things crop up.

Well, if you figure that one out, I'd love to know.
