Auto create user, mysql and ftp

I could a write a bash script that would create a new user and at the same time
- create a MySQL database based on the username / password
- create an FTP account
- create an email account
then send a mail to the user that the account had been set up.

For example: User: abc password: abc123

Manually this would be:

mysql part
create mysql database 'abc'
grant all on abc.* to abc@localhost identified by 'abc123'



Any suggestions appreciated.

This thread has some good discussion about creating a script to make new users.

Creating the ftp and mail accounts depend on what services you are using.
