    I'd like to sell a domain and the possibility for the client to use email only with that domain.

    How can I do this ?

    Do I have to create an package where every option is set to 0, but what about Quota in MB and Bandwidth Limit.
    If I set these to 0, will client be able to use email.

    Or is there an completely different way to do this.

    You want to create a package using the xmail or mailonly theme and set the bandwidth and disk space to something that will be acceptable to you for the mail. Our mail only packages go from 10MB to 1GB of space and 100MB to 10GB of bandwidth.

    A mail only account is the same as any regular hosting account, where there can be different sizes to them.

    Ah oke, completely forgot about about the xmail or mailonly theme.

    About the diskspace and bandwidth, would 10 MB and 100 MB be sufficient for normal use ?

    I have a few people using that size email account and it suits them. If they don't do a lot of emailing or send or receive a lot of large attachments, it should do.

    You would have to disable stats for the account or the stats alone will quickly use up the space.

    How do you disable the stats for individual accounts?

    It's a manual process.

    Add these lines to the users account data file which is at
    /var/cpanel/users/[username]
    skipanalog=1
    skipawstats=1
    skipwebalizer=1

    I also change the /home/[username]/tmp directory to read only (444). That's how I did it at first until this thread came up.
