Creating email accounts right from my site :)
« on: November 28, 2003, 01:12:11 PM »
Hello to all,

When I looked at the directory root of my website... I found the email directories organized like

/mail/mydomain/myemailaccount/inbox

And the inbox is a file that could be a zero length when there is no new messages.

At this stage, can I thought I can create an account using php (creating folders inside /mail and creating files etc...) but it didn't just work.

Ok I'll always pass trhough cPanel :)
But if other people manage it, then let me know
 :cry:

You need to create aliases/filters for the accounts as well. Those directories are just where the mail is stored - you still need to tell the server what to do with email to ??@domain.com

It is possible to create e-mail accounts on the systems from a PHP page.  I don't know how (sorry only partially helpful here), however, I have seen this achieved by one of our customer's from a PHPNuke based site.
