Hello there,
I am using fedora with ensim 4, ensim came with squirrelmail
Already installed and I wanted to have a website where I can
Let my users register emails with my domain.com using
Some kind of webmail server. squirrelmail is working fine
But I am the only one who can make accounts because I
Have to login to the ensim control panel administration
And add the user. Is there any other webmail that I can
Use to let my users register their emails or I can add or
Edit something to squirrelmail?
Thanks

I don't know too much about this, but this may help you:

http://www.ketec.ie/ensim/tech-hosting.pdf
See page 37, "Adding a user to a domain". The idea would be to write a CGI script (in Perl or PHP, for example) that issues a system command to create the user. I have a feeling this should work to add the user to your domain and give them email access.

This wasn't really part of your question, but I highly recommend Horde as a webmail client over squirrelmail. If you don't know much about Horde check out their website: http://www.horde.org.

Hope that at least helps get you on the right track :)

In case you don't know, in both Perl and PHP, the functionto issue a system command is system(), e.g.

                  system('ls -aL') //list the contents of the working directory
