To manage the email accounts in your dedicated server, you have access the web interface QmailAdmin.

It's available at the following address:

Before using QMailAdmin with a domain, you must add it via vpopmail. This is describe in the guide: VpopmailAndAdmin

This interface allows you, using the account postmaster, to manage all matters relating to the email of a domain on your server.

You also have a minimal webmail interface to check and send emails to this address:
See the guide on this subject : SqWebMailPresentation.

Operations on POP Accounts

Operations on Aliases and Redirections

Operations on Auto-Responders? and Mailing Lists

Establish limitations

To limit the number of POP3 accounts, mailing lists, etc.. Qmailadmin
has its own very simple system: just create the directory
domain(/home/vpopmail/domains/ file
.qmailadmin-limits like this:

# cat .qmailadmin-limits
maxpopaccounts 5
maxaliases -1
maxforwards -1
maxmailinglists 0
maxautoresponders 0
default_quota 25000000

please change the permissions to
.qmailadmin-limits vpopmail.vchkpw # ls -l
-rw-r--r-- 1 vpopmail vchkpw 132 jan 20 2002

In this example, the number of POP accounts that it is possible to create for this domain is 5. The number of aliases and forwards is not limited. Mailing lists and Auto-Responders? are not available. Each POP account established for this domain will be assigned by default a quota of 25 MB

You can configure default qmailadmin restrictions: we must recompile. Initially, it is compiled with the following options ./configure --enable-cgibindir=/home/ovh/cgi-bin; see ./configure --help in the source directory qmailadmin (usually /home/ovh/src/qmailadmin-xxx)
