You mean you want the username to be an email address?

If so - theoretically it's possible in the sense that any added FTP accounts will be [email protected]. It wouldn't be possible to do it for domains that are add-ons or parked [as the FTP accounts always use the primary domain].

That said - if you can elaborate why you're wanting to do this you may get better advice.

Hello :)

The authentication details for email accounts and FTP accounts are separate. However, you could develop a script that creates both email and FTP accounts with the same login credentials. Information on developing software for cPanel and our API is available at:

cPanel - SDK

Thank you.
