    You don't need webmin.

    MySQL is needed only if you want to use virtual email users instead of real system users.

    If you use system users, change their shell from /bin/bash or /bin/sh to /bin/false.
    If you use virtual users, they can't use SSH anyway.

    Did you take a look at the tutorials in http://www.howtoforge.com/taxonomy_menu/1/78/4 or the Postfix part of the "Perfect Setups"?

    I use Webmin to add/remove users and check mail, etc. I am a Windows person trying to learn Ubuntu. You can't take all my GUI tools away at once.

    I want to thankyou very much for all the help you have provided.
