Creating e-mail accounts on the fly

Hello,

I am interested in subscribing to Dreamhost's Crazy plan. I want to
offer a free e-mail service for students, and I want them to be able to
create e-mail accounts on the fly using PHP. Is there an API that I
could use to do so? I don't want to have to create these accounts
manually, and I prefer them to sign up, like they would do on
Hotmail...Is there a way to do it?
They say it is possible to create accounts only from their proprietary
control panel....
There's gotta be a solution though...
Thanks,

Probably not. To create email accounts you need root access; they're
probably spawning another process to do it. And if it checks itself
well, it also knows where it came from.

If you want to do that you'll need to get a VPS or dedicated server.
