    You can use the API

    From the shell, you can use /scripts/addpop to create an e-mail address on an existing e-mail account. The arguments that should be passed to /scripts/addpop are the e-mail address, the password, and the desired quota. The syntax is the following:

    # /scripts/addpop $emailaddress $password $quota
    You can also do this by calling an API1 or API2 function (preferably API2). Our documentation for the APIs is located here:

    Developer Resources

    The specific API2 function that you would want to call is the following:

    ApiEmail < ApiDocs/Api2 < TWiki

    Since this question is more closely related to development than to actual mail, I am moving this thread to our development area, which will get it more attention from users who are familiar with the cPanel APIs.
