I do this pretty regularly with no ill effect
The only thing I have noticed is that the user's maildir wont get created
until their 1st message arrives
This can cause a problem if the user tries to login to qmailadmin before
receiving any mail, as qmailadmin spits an error because it tries to write a
lock file to the non-existent maildir
There was a discussion a while back on the qmailadmin list about the the
pros/cons of creating accounts directly in SQL... maybe have a look at this
