    I personally did this on a Cpanel site. Got 2 scripts, one to create accounts on Cpanel and the other as a webmail interface

    First off, you should first get a dedicated server. Most shared hosting company's do not allow you to run your own gmail, hotmail, ect... type site (assuming that's your goal).

    Have a look at:
    http://www.lucidstorm.com/product.php?id=8

    It will allow you to setup your own hotmail type service and works with cPanel.

    www.webhostingtalk.com/webmail would be where they coudl access their account. But you will have to set up their accounts before they can access them.

    I may have read the post wrong, but if you are looking to offer free email addresses to your users, you may want to take a look at HiveMail... To set it up with cpanel, you just need to set your catch-all email address and pipe it to the hivemail script. Anyway, full instructions are included with HiveMail.

    So now that domain is stuck at Melborne IT (who they are using). I can't get it transfered back because the requests go unanswered. And the domain does NOT work at live.com

    Can you imagine how pissed someone would be if that were their business domain?

    EDIT: hmm.. different service. this just uses a manual pointer. can't see how that could hurt anything actually

    Do read your hosting provider TOS if you plan to host the email service on a shared environment. Most hosting provider would state under their TOS banning you from running form of free service like free webhosting or in your case free webmail.

    ACtually if you use the Live.com that's posted above, they wouldn't even know. but it does refer back to msn.

    click the 'sign up' link and you'll see. mygsp.com is my domain

    http://www.mygsp.com/mail.htm

    Course it's a windows live id, not separate mail

    By signing up for Windows Live, you will get a new e-mail account @mygsp.com. Your e-mail account will be provided by MSN Hotmail, a leading provider of free webmail. Your e-mail address is your Windows Live ID, which can also be used to access instant messaging and other services on the MSN and Windows Live network
