That's a pretty tall order you're asking... I mean, if I were hired to write that application, I'd charge time and materials and estimate that it'd take no less than a full month (40 hrs a week) to complete.

I suggest you look at online code repositories for a web-based email client written in PHP, and look through their documentation and source code.

The first thing you need to do is realize that PHP itself can't create users for you, not unless you give your PHP script root/administrator access on the machine you're creating users. The PHP application will simply access someone's existing mail box.

Here's a couple links to get you started.

Take care,
