RE: useradd 12345



If you are going to set them up with email accounts and don't need the login
capability, you might consider using the alias file or a derivative of it
using sendmail capabilities to read flat text files and parse appropriately
rather than login ID as numeric, which I think will lead to other unforeseen
problems.

Me too. But, Unless you're going to have a mail server for all university
students.  Its better to have a username based on their id numbers.
