Create mailboxes and email addresses

Posted by @davenicholls, Last update about 1 month ago

Create Webfaction mailboxes and email addresses

Takes each line of a draft in the format:

email address,mailbox
email address,mailbox

and creates the mailbox, then the email address (using the mailbox as its target)

The original draft is updated with the results of the API calls. Fully successful lines
will have the mailbox passowrd (randomly generated by the API) added to the end of the
line along with a success message.

If a failure occurs the error message is appended to the end of the line

If a mailbox is created, but not the associated email address the mailbox is left intact
