Sorry, I missed OP. 1st: I doubt ISP's relies on unix accounts for mail. Rather they likely have clients in an ldap directory and mail on some database backend storage. 2nd: You can create an extra mailbox by adding a line to /etc/mail/aliases: mailbox_name: /path/to/mailbox_name then run newaliases. To let a user access the mailbox you need to set filepermissions accordingly.
