is it possible to create POP3 accounts without having to individually fill out the 'add account' form?

for example..

users on my site fill in a form, adding them to a queue, when i view the queue and click an 'activate' link, i can use a URL along the lines of:
http://domain.com:2082/.../mail/addpop.html?user=user&domain=domain.com&pass=pass&quota=10

where the 4 fields are defined in the form.. possible? or not?

Jonah, if you are able to do it - tell me.
I just moved from a windows server to Advancedrack.com(Linux).

Its a pain to recreate the accounts. But thats how Linux works. No - as far as I know - its not possible to create accounts by clicking a predefined url.(becasue it will ask for Cpanel password then)

I may be wrong

Ohh I love Imail for NT.

True, but entering the cpanel pass isnt a hassle, its filling in the add account form that is time consuming, whilst smply clicking a pre-defined URL would be much quicker.

Anyone?

That's totally possible. You don't even have to type the CPanel user and password if you're using wget:

wget --http-user=user --http-passwd=password ADDRESS

You can add that to a cron'ned script and process your queue.

Wait! There's a safer solution than passing auth through the command line. Edit/create the user's local .wgetrc file and add the following parameters:

http_passwd = string
http_user = string

Make sure the file perms are 600. You can now now run

wget ADDRESS

Thanks dario, though that wasn't what i was looking for.

But yes, pre-defined URLs can be used.. i decided to give it a shot (trial and error), and yep, worked fine.

Thanks to those that tried to help anyway.
