IEA seem to want to use the postmaster 'forms' method of creating the accounts in Post.Office rather than the (much easier imho) utilities that come with post office. I am not a programmer, but I know enough to know it would be trivial to shell out to a command line and use's command line utilities to create, suspend or delete accounts - however IEA don't seem to be interested in further integrating Emerald with Post.Office, for whatever reason...

Last I heard, the utilities could not be ran on a remote machine, has
that changed? I'd like to see Post.Office offer a more robust API,
rather than a set of utilities you have to hack scripts and such
together for. Almost every other mail server on the market supports
either an External API or LDAP, for external user management.
