I have spent the past 9 years working at a small ISP, where I manage E-mail, DNS, Web, and Voip servers for a couple thousand clients.

Option number three is one that I had never considered before, thank you. Modifying software to suit our needs could technically be an option too, but the need for frequent security updates makes that kind of thing a huge pain in the butt. Adding users with the same mailbox is a far more graceful solution.

No, it's not a dupe. I saw that question before I asked this one. It's actually the reverse situation. Logging in with just the username part of the e-mail address is not a problem - if the user@ourdomain.com address exists. If it's user@hosteddomain.com, then they need to use the full e-mail address. Customers should be able to log in with either Username = user or Username = user@ourdomain.com.

No, this is backwards. Customers who use our domain do not include the @ourdomain.com part, they just log in with "myuser". Customers with virtual domain hosting include their full e-mail address.

comment PHP is not executing scripts after Debian upgrade
Maybe I'll try this out on Saturday, when customers aren't likely to complain nearly as much when we test to failure. :)

I've even tried uninstalling all the PHP packages, then starting with the simplest possible setup. No dice.

I actually noticed this beforehand. Sorry, didn't do anything.

Nah, this didn't work. It's worth noting that Debian will automatically restart Apache when you install libapache2-mod-php5, and when I ran 'a2enmod php5' it said "Module php5 already enabled"

@TeroKilkanen: Added that to my question. I just get PHP code.
