Question about adding users (Dapper)

I use the Dapper server version and wonder what tools is used by others to
create new users.

I learned the hard way that when using /usr/sbin/adduder WhatEvername it
will not create the Maildir information.
It was necessary to add the following in the /etc/skel file.

cd /etc/skel
maildirmake Maildir
maildirmake -f Sent Maildir
maildirmake -f Drafts Maildir
maildirmake -f Templates Maildir
maildirmake -f Junkmail Maildir
chmod 700 Maildir

What would you recommend?
Would you recommend Webmin?
