Hhm i think, i like this. WHY SHOULD THE USER HAVE ACCESS TO THE SSL-CERT, TO HIS MAIL-FILES OR SOMETHING SIMILAR. If you are a 1und1 customer you don't have this files too (and i don't know if it is a good idea, that a customer can delete or edit a ssl-cert or something else outside his document_root
i also thought about the client side, but how to tell my customer such a thing. i am happy if they can setup a mail-client
(nothing against my customer - that's NOT THEIR BUSINESS!
