UW-Imap uses system users all you need is to add users and setting the right permissions. This can be done through Webmin or by shell.
Users for email don't required shell login, so you can use 'useradd' instead of 'adduser'.
A quick and dirty script for doing that is something like that:

Code:
#!/bin/bash


if [ $USERNAME ="" ]; then
echo "Choose Username"
read USERNAME
useradd $USERNAME; fi

if [ $PASSWORD ="" ]; then
echo "Choose Password for $USERNAME"
read PASSWORD
passwd $USERNAME; fi

echo "Creating home directory"
mkdir /home/$USERNAME
echo "Setting Permissions"
chown -R $USERNAME /home/$USERNAME

Every time you run it ask you to choose username and password and sets the home directory and permissions.
Afterwards you can use IlohaMail or Thunderbird.
Making Thunderbird to work:

Code:
Account Name : SMS-MAIL
Email Address : user@sms.org
Incoming Username: user
Incoming Server Name : sms
Incoming Server Type : IMAP
Tick 'Use TLS if available'

Outgoing SMTP server :
Description : SMS
Server Name : sms
Port: 25
Un-tick 'use name and password'
Tick 'Use TLS if available'

As weird as may sound in my home network user@sms.org delivered to me, if you have problems you may want to change it to user@sms or user@yourdomain (yourdomain replace sms in settings).
You can send email to internet mails (yahoo, gmail e.t.c.) but don't expect to receive any on your email user@sms unless you're using a DNS Service.
