OSXS E-mail service - mailing lists and mail forwarding

in macOS edited January 2014
I want to start up the OSXS mail server but I need a few things from it first. I want to set up mail forwards so something like webmaster@domain.com points to a completely different e-mail address. Do I have to have the user "webmaster" on the server for this to work? I want to do this for quite a few names forwarding to all different addresses and I don't want to force these user accounts and home directories on the server if they aren't even going to log in to get the mail.

How can I set up a mailing list. Ideally, I want to store several e-mail addresses in a text file and have something like list@domain.com forward the e-mail to each address in that text document. Is there special software I need for this to work?

How well does the POP3 and IMAP mail work? I haven't tried it but if you set it up using Server Admin, does it work the same on the client end as any other POP3 or IMAP server? I suppose I can't just set up e-mail users without them being able to login on the server.

I want this to be as painless as possible. I wish I could do all this with a few text files. Specify the names the server will see and what e-mail addresses it needs to forward to. Alas, it seems it's more difficult in that I'm force to create all new users for each address I want.

TIA for any help.
