    Hello,

    I have set up a website and email account for someone on my server. They are demanding from me that they want to be able to add their own new email addresses themselves. Obviously I do not wish to give them access to CPanel as they could break things.

    Is there a way for someone to add an email account without having to use CPanel?

    Thank you

    There is no way for an end user to create an email account from outside cPanel, no.

    there is a way but then php script has to login to account as well since i have seen email create php scripts for cpanel/whm.

    But then i think it does through API or some function method for that to work.

    Actually there is.

    First off I installed roundcube at my domain.
    Code:
    Example: www.mydomain.com/roundcube
    Then I edited the roundcube homepage template so users can click link to direct to script that allows email signups.

    Next I edited the "php script" to allow link back to
    Code:
    Example: www.mydomain.com/roundcube

    The above steps are not necessary but I did it to make it look better.

    But anyways the main thing are the 2 files in the zip. The files explain what you need to do to get it to work.

    A little more customizing I was able to edit roundcube main config to allow users to login with only username and not the @mydomain.com ....

    Hopefully these files dont get deleted, these will help others out.
    I didn't write these files, I found them and they do work. I use it to create email addresses.
