Default Steps for creating virtual email boxes

Hi folks,

OpenBSD 4.0 X86_64
Mysql
Postfix-2.4.3


Please shed me some light on creating virtual email boxes.

For example
To set up a virtual email box for "Albert Jones", I run;

$ su
password
# su - _vmail
$ mkdir -p satimis.com/albert
$ maildirmake satimis.com/albert/Maildir
$ maildirmake -q 10000000S satimis.com/albert/Maildir

all went through w/o complaint.

$ mysql -u root -p
Code:
Enter password: 
Welcome to the MySQL monitor.  Commands end with ; or \g.
Your MySQL connection id is 3 to server version: 5.0.24a-log

Type 'help;' or '\h' for help. Type '\c' to clear the buffer.

mysql>

Now I can't recall whether having run following command before;
Code:
mysql> insert into postfix_virtual_domains values
('1','satimis.com','maildrop:');
Is there any way to check??? If NO can I re-run the command? Any possible mistake created in doing so? Tks.


To create an account for "albert" whether to run;
Code:
mysql> insert into postfix_users
(email,clear,name,homedir,maildir,quota) values
('albert@satimis.com','UzeR0nePazz','Albert Jones','/var/mail/vmail','satimis.com/albert/Maildir/','10000000');
then
Code:
mysql> \q
That is all (same procedure for creating other accounts) ???


Is the above command correct? Afterwards how to check it is working locally on the email server instead of sending albert an email from another LAN? TIA
