Postmaster email account for Exchange 2010

Hello Team,

I would like to know what is the proper method to set up a mailbox in an Exchange 2010 Environment. I already configured it Organization Configuration > Global settings tab > Transport Settings > "External postmaster address", which I entered my personal email address in that field. Although when I send a message to I don't receive the email, I receive a bounceback that the user postmaster does not exist.
Am I supposed to create a user account for in my domain and enable an mailbox for it just like I do with any user account?

Thank you!
