mail for a UNIX user without affecting ftp or shell access?

You can configure the system not to accept mail for that user, something like:

To:[EMAIL PROTECTED] 550 Email to someuser has been disabled

...in /etc/mail/access. You could set up a redirect alias and point mail for them to some other location, or even redirect mail for that user to /dev/null-- or via a REJECT or DISCARD entry in the access map.
