I installed the web mail package also and it shows up on the ISPconfig (tools menu I think) admin page but am a bit confused, apparently it is just a client ? To allow admin to look at his mail ?
No. Every user who has an email account on this server can use it. Simply type the URL: https://www.yourdomain.com:81/webmail in the browser and enter your email address and password. If the URL is too cryptic, you can make a new website, e.g. webmail.yourdomain.com and redirect it to https://www.yourdomain.com:81/webmail.

My plan is to just create one site that we could use for a web page if we wanted but to then put all our internal email users as "no shell" mail users and use outlook (yuck) as the user mail client at work and the internet for remote mail viewing.

Dumb question 1 ) I dont see any reason my scheme above should not work, do you ?
Thats Ok.

Dumb question 2) our ISP dns works fine and our domain that I will create the site under is in the IPS's DNS. I would think I dont need to run named/BIND with the ISP's DNS servers configured as part of the ethernet card setup. Do you agree ? The IPS's DNS is reliable. At a later date I might play with cacheing it but for now turning DNS off seems to be the more conservative way of doing things. (and removing the virtual ip created by the how to ?)
You dont have to use the BIND setup from ISPConfig, just stay with your ISP's DNS Server.
