Disable sendmail?

I currently have a mail system with a custom control panel. I want to continue using it for all email.

I have installed Virtualmin and want to use it for website configuration (including FTP access).

Is it possible to remove sendmail (and any other MTA) from webmin / virtualmin? I don't want mail accounts created. I don't want users to see references to mailboxes, sendmail, etc when using webmin / virtualmin.

I tried removing the sendmail module from webmin (since I do not want webmin managing sendmail). When I try to create a virtualhost in virtualmin I get the error messages:

"Failed to create virtual server : module sendmail does not exist"

I have already clicked the "Re-check and refresh configuration" button. When I removed the sendmail module there was no message that virtualmin depended on sendmail.

Hey John,

You'll need to configure Virtualmin not to setup mail. In the Module Config, find the option labeled "Mailbox and alias configuration enabled?" and set it to No. It's in the "Enabled features for servers" section.

Save it. All done.
