mail archiving with bcc to a local user account: any security issues?

Tom Browder
I tried to follow the instructions in several links detailing how to use the always bcc method to archive mail sent through my mail server. However, I couldn't get the no-home user with a /var Maildir directory to work.

I did get it to work by using a local user as bcc and all the mail goes to that account fine (the name I picked isn't ideal so I plan to change it soon).

My question is: is that any less secure than the no-home methods?

Thanks.
