This is caused by a bug in the current version of Virtualmin - it checks new usernames against existing aliases, even those that have been disabled! You can work around it by deleting that 'sales' alias, or installing the latest developmnent version of Virtualmin, available from :
By the way, anyone who is interested in playing with some of the new features that will be in the next release should check out the 2.09 development version as well. It's got stuff like support for multiple domains per user, renaming of domains, automatic IP allocation, and a simple SSL certificate request page.

I recently installed Webmin v1.150 on a newly configured Fedora Core 2
On another machine running RH7.3 I see mimegetty (sp) running when using
TOP, yet on this machine I never see it running and I can not access the
machine at port 10000.
I can access the machine when connected directly to the machine using
ssh and accessing it via lynx and localhost. However, any attempts at
accessing it remotely fail.
Folks at the data center have also tried connecting on port 10000 and
they are unsuccessful, getting a no response error.
One other thing I noticed is that only the webmin and others sections
(using lynx) are accessible when ssh'ing in and using lynx.
Any one have any ideas? I have gone to the webmin configuration and
changed the sections from images to text.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated as I am pretty dependent on
webmin to administer my server.
