Default Add user e-mail accounts

I used http://www.howtoforge.com/perfect_setup_ubuntu_6.06 to set up my server. How do I add/delete user e-mail accounts? Right now I can only use my main user. I want to be able to create user accounts (like johndoe@mysite.com). The most preferable way for me to do this is using a php script if there is a way (so users can sign up online).

Thank you for your help,
Marc

What you wrote seems to send everyones e-mails to one box. I want all my users to have seperate boxes and users be able to be created in php. Any hints on where to look for that? But thanks for the responce falco. You rock.

The link tells you how to set up a mail account. If you need multiple mail accounts, you must do this multiple times.

Ok, but is there a way to do this in php or some internet language that unbuntu is configured for so that e-mail creation can be automated?
Thanks so much for your help falco.

Yes, but you must run this script with root privileges.

If you have a look at ISPConfig: it does the same, and it's written in PHP.
