Hello owncloud

New users register themselves the first time by connecting to owncloud with their imap accounts. They have their owncloud accounts automatically created, I don't create the users myself. I would like for these automatically created accounts to be automatically added to a specific group. Is there a way for me to do this ?

So the only way I see would be to use the Provisioning API to assign users to certain groups after you do realize from the log files that they were created ...
