Can you elaborate on what you mean by "creating email accounts"? Do you simply mean use PHP to mail the data back to you, or something as complex as web based email?

I want to auto-create POP users in Send Mail based on POST data. So when a user signs up, it will tell them their email address ([email protected]). That user, can then immediately turn to outlook (or whatever) and setup that account and start using it. Got me now?

A Web-based mail interface is something I may tackle later, but for now I just need to setup the accounts.

EDIT: This functionality for QMail is ok too
