Server Fault is a question and answer site for system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

the question might sound trivial for whoever of you guys is able to install and manage a server on his own. For the rest of us who are not able to do anything (almost anything) without cPanel/WHM, I have a curiosity.

I can not say I'm completely satisfied with cPanel due to their lack of support (as an example I asked this simple question on their official forum on how to add a new language/locale file on WHM/cPanel, but my question seems to be a voice in the desert) but still at the end of the day I have to say that cPanel works and it's easy to use.

Anyway, reading some questions here on SF I saw people talking about Webmin, I got interested maybe they are more helpful since it's open source.

I had a look at Webmin demo screenshot and demo but there is no menu to manage the emails like creating new emails, etc.

Am I missing something?

Sorry for my ignorance in this field, but shouldn't all control panels let me manage the emails, otherwise how could someone manage these. I don't need my customer to manage the mails, but even me as administrator how do i create/remove mails (psw and quotas) if the control panel (like Webmin) does not provide such a functionality?

To do what you want you need to use webmin with virtualmin, There is comprehensive documentation on http://www.virtualmin.com/documentation

Ok, but what I don't underastand, is if I install only Webmin, how do I manage mails? Are there other ways, I mean manually with no control panel? –  Marco Demaio Aug 27 '10 at 15:04
If your mail users are system users, all you do is just add a user account. –  topdog Aug 27 '10 at 15:42
