Make a file (let's say /etc/all.users) wich contains all accounts name. (cat /etc/passwd | cut -f1 -d: >/etc/all.users)
Edit the file /etc/aliases and write something like this:
everyone::include:/etc/all.users
after that run 'newaliases'.

Dear JYoungman, you didn't answer my question.
You have misunderstood my question.

My previous comment was a *question*.  I asked that question *because* I did not understand what you had written.  So naturally I could not answer your question.
