Create a new email account on cPanel with SSH

If you use cpanel for hosting your website, then all mail features can be managed through the web. One of them manange all mail accounts can be managed through a web-based application cpanel. Do you know if you add a user mail can also be done through ssh console? following his tips and tricks:)

/scripts/addpop user_i[email protected] user_password

But this did not set the email quota for the user.

I figured out That if I edit

/home/account_name/etc/ and add a line with

user_id: quota_in_bytes

it takes care of the quota setting.

note: 1K of quota = 1024, 1M = 1024×1024

I hope a little tutorial can help: D
