I'm building a site where advertisers can buy leads for widgets. I was running into problems when trying to have my site use php to send the email to email@example.com.
The best way I have found to make sure that all the leads reach the advertiser is to give them a POP3 account that redirects to their real email address. e.g. the advertiser would have an account 103-joeblow@MyDomain.com that redirects to firstname.lastname@example.org. That seemed to get me past junk mail filters, and all the other issues I was having, but created a new problem.
Now everytime I sign up an advertiser I have to manually create them a POP3 account, which granted takes very little time, but it isn't exactly immediate access for the advertiser.
So finally my question: Is there a way that I can auto generate POP3 accounts using php for my VPS that is plesk using horde for email?

So you're saying you don't like my crazy method of doing things? Thanks for the link, I'll see if I can make things work that way... I am still curious about auto generating accounts if anyone knows how.

Sure it can, and plesk itself is written partly in PHP. What you really need to know is how to setup the mailboxes on your server, then you simply use PHP or other server-side processes to automate the task. That is what plesk is doing ;)
