    Default Mail script??

    Hi,
    I'm looking for a free email script that can do the follwing:


    • Provide the ability to log into a user@mydomain.com email account
    • Allow registrations from guests on my website
    • It needs to be installable on my website (hosted on glowhost)

    Any suggestions?
    Thanks,
    JC

    So you want a script that will create email addresses for your users / members of the general public on your site so that you do not have to make the email addreses manually?

    I don't think it would be possible without a VPS or dedicated server and even then it may not be easy because cPanel changes the way their system functions pretty regularly.

    They do not have any email options yet for their XML API and that would be the closest thing to use if they had such a function because your script may work today, but not tomorrow if they decide to change the way email accounts work. Without an API call it might be difficult to maintain.

    You might put in a feature request on their bugzilla to see if it could be added.

    well i dont mean that i want a script that uses cpanel to create email accouts.. what i mean was this: i need a script that can create and manage email accounts independently from cpanel

    Yes but how would that work? You still need the mail server for things to work and that is part of cPanel. I think it is possible to setup a webmail like horde or squirrelmail in your public_html and i suppose you could modify those public interface pages to do what you like.

    I'd thnk that if you can get a webmail program installed then you would be well on your way to what it was that you are trying to do. Maybe check cpanel forums for some other opinions on it.

    It can be, it all depends on how securely the software is written and how well you keep the scripts on your site up to date as well as how secure your logins are.

    I'd think a safer way would be to encrypt the user and password in a database but it's really a judgement call.
