    Hi,

    Yes, you need to use the /root/cpanel3-skel/ dir for any files you want include din new accounts (i.e. a default index page).

    For the system email, make sure that you have setup WHM > Change System Mail Preferences > to have a valid email address set for each one of those entries.

    As for logging into POP3 (if the above is not the issue) then if you have the Default Address pointing to your main cPanel account, you would login to the POP3 server using account/password. If, however, you have the Default Address pointing anywhere else (or set to :fail: ) then you should create a virtual POP3 (Mail) account called account@domain.com and then login via POP3 to account@domain.com/password. Where account=cPanel account name. The alternative to that (setting up a virtual POP3 account) is to setup a forwarder in the account for account@domain.com to point to account@hostname.server.com. Let me know if that all sounds like gibberish ;)
