If you already have a user that is going to receive e-mail from this new account you can go to the users e-mail address tab and add an SMTP account by that e-mail address.  The e-mail address must be in your domain.  For example if john@consoco.com wants to receive e-mail for sales@consoco.com you could add that e-mail address to his user account. You would not need to create a user account or a contact.
