The root user can set up redirects from accounts that exist on the 
local box as well as those that don't, to one or more redirect
mailboxes, in /etc/aliases .  E.g., my /etc/aliases file includes these

postmaster: root
root: rick

There is no "postmaster" login account on the machine, but any mail
arriving for postmaster gets redirected to root, which in turn gets
redirected to rick.

Individual users can redirect their own incoming mail to elsewhere via
one or more lines in a ~/.forward file.

This message falsely claims to have been scanned for viruses with F-Secure
Anti-Virus for Microsoft Exchange and to have been found clean.
