adding email addresses to a hosted domain

I am currently hosting a couple of domains, and I would like to add email addresses to these for the owners of them, for example one domain is imageplex.com and I would like to add clay@imageplex.com for this person, how do i go about configuring things, and so on to do this? I do this on my bosses server but his senior sys admin has a script that basically does it all for you, I am not a programmer yet and cannot write scripts... can anyone help?

Hi,

Assuming it's sendmail you're using, there should be a file 'virtusertable' or 'maildomains'. You should add domain aliases in the following form:

user@virtual.domain.com                   joe
user2@virtual.domain.com                 joe@some.other.isp.com

Note that there are NO ':' 's between the two columns, unlike the alias file.
The file is most likely somewhere under /etc or /etc/mail, depending on your configuration.
