Creating an account

   Dim obApp
Set obApp = CreateObject("hMailServer.Application")

' Authenticate. Without doing this, we won't have permission
' to change any server settings or add any objects to the
' installation.
Call obApp.Authenticate("Administrator", "your-main-hmailserver-password")

' Locate the domain we want to add the account to
Dim obDomain
Set obDomain = obApp.Domains.ItemByName("example.com")

Dim obAccount
Set obAccount = obDomain.Accounts.Add

' Set the account properties
obAccount.Address = "account@example.com"
obAccount.Password = "secret"
obAccount.Active = True
obAccount.MaxSize = 100 ' Allow max 100 megabytes
