    I've got a script that allows some of my trusted site users to create their own email address such as joebloggs@mydomain.com and it works fine, however, when i created one to check and then logged in using www.mydomain.com/webmail i found i could see ALL the email folders and their contents even though my username and password were different from the main account(s)?

    Can someone help me sort this problem out please?

    Regards,
    Simon

    If you log into cPanel Webmail as the cPanel user, you'll see all accounts. If you log in using the full email address as the username, you'll be logged into that one account.

    Thanks for the response, this is what i did, i logged out from cpanel & webmail, i used the script to create an email address for me, i then logged in at www.mysite.com/webmail using the full email address and newly created password and i could view ALL email folders and contents.

    What would cause this behaviour?

    Regards,
    Simon

    It was a server (cache) problem and is now sorted, as for accessing via cpanel thats no good as this is for individual accounts.
