    WebMail

    Hello,


    I apologize, but if you can clarify what you mean. Do you mean the autoload feature in webmail when you select your client (horde/squirrel mail/etc..)? Please verify that we have an understanding so we can get your issue resolved for you, and feel free to ask any questions you may have.


    Thank you,
    Matthew Curry

    activate auto sign up under webmail

    Dear sir.
    My site is hosted by ewebguru.com which uses cpanel with linux OS. Sir in my site to create a new email id I have to do webmail>emaill accounts> add user each time to set up a new email id. As you can feel this is not so convenient. So I want my site users to sign up for their email account themshelves. Please suggest me how can I activate the auto signup feature under webmail, so my my user can sign up directly.

    There is no feature for that built into cPanel/WHM. However, if you would like information on how you can program your own application to call our APIs to do this for you, let me know.

    How to set auto sign up under webmail???

    Hello, Currently my site hosted by a cpanel powered server. As you all know to add a new email account, it has to be done by the site admin each time. As this feature is not convenient for both my site users & me. Thus I want to set the auto sign up feature in my site, so my users can sign up for their email account directly. I contacted my hosting guy in this context but he really doesn't know anything about this & thing to confuse me each time. I appeal to everybody in this forum Please tell me how can I set this feature with my domain.

    You may want to take a look at the developer channel to start ...

    http://developer.cpanel.net

    Cpanel has an API for most calls and it is ridiculously easy to script
    things such as automatic email creation (I built one myself that you could use)
    although I would advise any signup page you have setup calling such a
    script have appropriate security precautions in place to try to prevent
    people from just signing up for an automatic email account to use as spam
    else you will find yourself and your server in trouble very, very quickly.

    The raw API call to create an email account is as follows:

    Code:
    <cpanel Email="addpop($FORM{'email'},$FORM{'password'},$FORM{'quota'},$FORM{'domain'})">
    Pertinent information about this call:

    - API Version: 1
    - Module: Email
    - Function: addpop
    - Parameter #1: part of email address before @
    - Parameter #2: password for email account
    - Parameter #3: number representing the disk quota of the mail account in megabytes
    - Parameter #4: part of the email address after @


    You can learn more about API1 and API2 at:

    WebHome < DeveloperResources/ApiBasics < TWiki

    You can learn how to call these functions remotely via our XML API at:

    XML and JSON APIs

    An easier way to use our APIs though is to use a PHP 5 class Matt on our QA team made which is available at:
