Re: Web managment software

Try webmin and usermin (http://www.webmin.com or Debian distribution).
usermin is the app for users (duh) and webmin is the package for the
systems administrator.

I do not remember any usermin modules to manage e-mail aliases (I do that
myself on our servers), but if you have to write something later, write it
as a usermin module. You can, if you have a trusted user base and a lot of
time to spend repairing their mistakes, give limited access to webmin to
your users (ie, on a module and task basis) which will allow them to
modify /etc/aliases or /etc/mail/aliases. I, personally, don't have the
guts to do that.

The debian distribution generally lags a little so I usually go download
the package myself and install it on my servers. Very, very simple
install. And, it supports https.

The good thing about standards is that there are so many to choose from.
