email access - no login though


i have my server up and going with email and web. i want to be able to add email users with passwords and all, but i dont want them to be able to ssh in or anything. right now it's bootleg and i just have it to allow ssh from computers that i am normally sitting at (home network at my job). How do i add email users, that can't log into the machine?



SMTP: sendmail


they check their mail in a web based thingy (horde:imp), i just like to call it webmail.


as i have it setup now, i have to add a user account everytime i want to add an email account, but i dont wanna do that. i'd like to have it setup eventually where someone can sign up for an email account online but not be able to log into my machine (like yahoo mail or hotmail or something i guess).

any idea how this works?

could a moderator please move this to Linux-General. I respect the double post rule and I want this question to get more exposure.

Thanks.

horde is cool. a lot nicer (to look at) than squirrelmail

to be honest i don't know if it's possible to have mail only users, but you can have a normal user who is not allowed to connect remotely easily enough by setting it up ni /etc/security/access.conf you can just set it to automatically dissallow everyone remote apart from you. the access.conf file should already be in palce and sufficently commented to make it a doddle to use.

I think acid_kewpie is right - just disallow them access and I would aslo set up restricted firewall rules to only allow ssh access from specific hosts etc.

Have you ever had a look at moregroupware:
http://moregroupware.sourceforge.net/
It has a very nice webmail interface (uses a lot of JS though) and has loads of other features such as calendaring too.
