Hi Guys,

I really like the simplicity of the web control panel, but sometimes it is just easier to open an SSH session (for example on my phone - old jailbroken iphone with terminal) and do some quick admin work.

So my question is: is it possible to add/remove email boxes/ additional users/ databases (MySQL mainly) through SSH? I know that I can connect to an existing database, but I did not have much luck creating one.

Thanks a lot for your good work, I am really happy with your servers/services.

It is possible, but not in SSH directly. You would have to write a script based on our API and run it,

Genius! Thanks, that gives me some nice ideas to try to put together an app that will do it.
