I've never had the illusion of turning vpopmail into a complete ISP
account management package. It is an virtual email management
package and probably best left to that task. I think a complete ISP
package is best contained in it's own project, and hooked up to vpopmail
by calling command line programs.
I've worked on several ISP projects were we did exactly that. The ISP
programs called shell scripts to add/delete/update email accounts.
It took about 1 hour to update these scripts to call the vpopmail programs.
