Hi guys

I was wondering if it's possible to let users create new email accounts, and change paswords of existing accounts, outside of cpanel.

Thanks for any info.
Best.

Hi,

No, your users can't create their mailboxes outside cPanel. However, they can reset their mail passwords via webmail:
http://domain.com/webmail/
user: full mailbox name
pass: password to the mailbox

Hope it helps you.

Well, I have installed nutsmail and seems that they can't change their password from webmail. Are you sure we can change password from thr webmail? I couldn't fing how. Thanks again.

Also, say I am having a community forum called www.mycommunity.com and have 5000 members there. Say, I want everyone of that site gets an email address as [email protected], [email protected].com, etc. Now what's the practical solution here. Is there a way to allow users to create their own email accounts just like they could do so for yahoo or gmail? Or they should pass through the forum admin, but in that case, is it very practical for the forum admin to create 5000 email address, and keep doing the same as new members signs up (say, 50 new members a day)? Also, for changing their password, is it a practical solution to let all the 5000 members of the site to enter cpanel?

It appears to be an important problem, but I searched in the net, different forums, but couldn't find a good solution to that. Any idea?

Thanks.

Or atleast if it were possible to know the path to files that allow us to create new accounts and to change passwords, may be we could try to replicate those codes elsewhere ... I am trying to find the path, if anyone knows something, thanks for your help.

go here...

www.yourdomain.ext/webmail

Once you log in(*), click the [Change Password] option at the bottom of the page

(*) remember your login name will be the full email address, and not just the part before the @ sign!
