Around what ? If you mean having accounts on the machine for every user who
will get his/her email from there, no, how can there be ? If I am following
this thread it was about having email users authenticated from elsewhere.
If the machine is to accept email for a user it has to believe that user
exists on the machine. 

Its fairly neat really. I have a central machine that is the PDC, scripts
run on that (under cron) that ensure that there are accounts with the same
name on the other servers. Its quite secure because the 'other servers'
don't need any password info.
