Roundcube uses SMTP and IMAP in the backend.

So if you simply add a real user using useradd or adduser roundcube
will start recognizing.

In case you are using virtual users then you can use the appropriate tool.

But I think even virtual users are mapped to real UNIX accounts with
/bin/false as the shell
 or something.

That is what I do in my mail server.

Roundcube is a brilliant tool, I am happy you are using it.

Create folders, preview pane, HTML mail inline display and so on.

People get an Outlook like experience on the web.

At least my customer is very happy with it.
