    as described in thread http://www.howtoforge.com/forums/showthread.php?t=4600 it is possible to disable the Web-FTP Module for confused customers :D

    I read some postings about external Mailserver and external DNS.
    Thats exactly my configuration.

    So is it possible to disable also the mail and or bind modules for customers only ?

    And if not... is there a chance to hide not needed configuration pages (global
    or for single users/ webs)?

    And last for today... I thought I read a post that it is not possible to
    make the "External Mailserver" a default setting. Is this actually (V2.2.8) true ?

    You can disable it for each user by removing the module from the user's record in the sys_user table in the ISPConfig database. I think the module is called file or isp_file or something like that.

    Yes, unless you modify the ISPConfig sources.

    I know this is working for the Web-FTP Modul (sys_user -> isp_tools).
    But I am interested in finding a way to disable or hide the mail and
    bind coniguration pages. Have you any additional hints or tricks ?

    So this would be a nice feature for a future release !
    Only one additional question in the setup:
    What is your prefered mailserver (extern/intern) ?:D

    You may hide the DNS-Manager by removing the string "dns" from the modules field of all users in the sys_user table.

    The mail functions are part of the isp module, but you cant remove them separately as all website unctions belong to the same module.
