Hi there,

Bit of a n00b with using cPanel/WHM, Exim, Dovecot etc., but I'll keep it to the point

Have root access to a VPS (CentOS 6.7, WHM 56.0) with Exim, Dovecot and webmail setup (can automatically choose between Horde, Roundcube and SquirrelMail).

Managed to create an account e.g. [email protected] and e-mail flows properly etc., and can login to the WHM webmail portal to send and receive.

I want to create more mail users for the same domain.com, e.g. [email protected], [email protected]

On using 'Create a new account', it says I can't create another user for domain.com because it's already in use.

A quick google (thinking it must be right in front of me), I've only found suggestions for creating the [email protected] by putting the domain as something like info.domain.com in the 'Create a new account' screen.

I tried this, and chose the e-mail as [email protected], but e-mail doesn't deliver (only delivers to [email protected] (which isn't what I want).

Also seen suggestions for /scripts/addpop but in doing this I don't see the resulting account in cPanel (as some say I should), and can't login to the webmail portal either.

I'm sure I'm missing something obvious, but don't know anyone familiar with cPanel/WHM or CentOS :(

Any help gratefully received, so I can get more familiar with this. Any other resources also very welcome that would apply to my current setup!

Chris

Yes - the account that's been created works fine. I've set email accounts to 10 and I don't see any different options when logged into the WHM as root.

I don't understand your reply. Once you set that account's Package to permit 10 email acounts, did you log in as that user into his cPanel account, and try to create a second email account on your domain, the problem you had originally? If yes, were you successful?
