    Hi guys,

    Im new to the forums and I have had a bit of a search around and it seems that this is a common issue with other, but I have not found the solution.

    Like many others, I want to provide a free email account service for my website visitors. This will work by allowing the visitor to fill out a form (with the desired email address @mydomain.com) and upon submission, the script should check to availability of the email address, report any errors, if its available, create it with a quota and the password provided.

    I will at first use Horde for a webmail interface, but I eventually will try to contruct my own webmail application.

    Please post your solutions here. I believe there are many...along the lines of PHP/cURL. The easier, the better! Just want to automate the email creation basicly.

    I have a feeling you're not too great with the search function.

    Yes, I've developed something in PHP to create email accounts. It's been posted here and is available for download here as well. It was the sixth result of a search I performed.

    I would not recommend this as Spammers would eat you alive.

    More help On Auto email Creating and Forwarding

    Thank you Guys for all the help and contributions. I appreciate them all. I am really new to php, please do not be irritated by my request.
    I have just a similar intention with almost all of the users here, and to mention, I want to enable the users to my website, to automatically create email addresses, and also forward them to other emails they may have.
    I have looked through the codes helpfully provided to us by others here, and I just don't know how to get this work for me. I know there are quite alot of thing they consider others already know, and some of this I am probably missing. How do I point the form to this code? or is this code going to be on a php page I am to create?

    Again I thank you all for your contributions, and will be glad you do me some more favour.
