How will security work? Will admins get access to all the passwords? It's no use in an email system that stores all the passwords as raw data in the DB.

One more thing I would like to ask.
Do you want the users to have the same passwords as the phpbb user database or a new one?
How will security work? Will admins get access to all the passwords? It's no use in an email system that stores all the passwords as raw data in the DB.
The admin will be able to change settings of each user independantly.

I don't know if the user should use the same password or not. On the one hand, with phpBB3 you can force the use of a stronger password, but if someone somehow breaks the password to the forums, they have the email password as well.

Generally speaking you should have a different pass for email, but in this case it may not matter.

No, you need to go to your host cpanel to create email accounts, then tell phpbb about your pop3 information.

Sure they can.

Ok, here I would like to ask what most of you thikn about.
For most share host, you do not have a root permission, which means the admin have to add/delete user accounts throught their control panel.
So, it seems like the admin have to add their emails for the users by hand.

If your host uses cpanel, then I can create a script that will automaticly create emails for users,
But for other control panels, I will have to take a look.

Thanks.

If a new member registers, will this create an email@mydomain.com address?

Depands whether you are on a share host, and how your website control panel works. ;)

I have cpanel too :) so it will be nice to create a script so that it avoid doing thing by amdin. But however the email must be validated by admin. I dont want anyone to come and creates emails. Or a option that if a user in a Group he can create email that can be nice idea.

I cant wait to see all this working on my board :D
