We wish to use Cpanel to offer a limited set of tools to a subset of our users. For instance, Web hosting only, no e-mail services.

How does WHM support this?

TIA

You make a separate theme and package for those particular users, that you don't want to have email functionality.
it's as simple as copying the default them (/usr/local/cpanel/base/frontend/default) to a new directory and then tweaking the files within.

then you attach a particular package to that theme, and you can specifiy what functions are available to users in that package by manipulating the theme.

steps

editing cpanel
1. cd /usr/local/cpanel/base/frontend
2. cp -r default new_name_of_theme
3. then cd new_name_of_theme/iconic
4. edit the main.html page (pico main.html)
5. remove what you don't want
6. ctrl x to exit it will ask if you want to save it

Am I missing something?

feanor, you posted this path &/usr/local/cpanel/base/frontend/default& in your reply. I get to /usr/local/cpanel/ and the cpanel directory is completely empty. From your path, I have to assume that other people have directories and subdirectories in the cpanel directory. Do you have any idea what might have happened to mine?
