You can also set the shell to passwd.

That's a good point, based on a closer reading of the OP than my own. The difference being that it requires the addition of a user for each mail account whereas something like vpopmail does not. I've googled but can't see anything about this so for my information, I generally use /nonexistent as the shell in situations like this, and add /nonexistent to /etc/shells. Is there a difference between using /passwd and something like /nonexistent?

Is it possible to add an email account in a mail server without a shell account?

Yes, by using some additional software to manage the virtual user. /usr/ports/mail/vpopmail is one such, but there are others.
