I'd like to be able to creae all user accounts (email addys) in a database and
subsequently offer email users a small home page (bit like an isp, I suppose)

Is it possible for ispconfig to automatically create such email accounts?
How?
Is there an example of this anywhere?
No, this doesn't work with ISPConfig. ISPConfig uses system users, not virtual users.

Don't give the users shell access in ISPConfig, then they can't log in on the shell.
