The home directory permissions are set to 700 owned by the user and primary group of the individual when you create a new user. (This is a sensible setting, and I can't see why anyone would need to change it?)

Webmin doesnot provide an interface for every possible eventuality, it provides sufficient to get the job done.

If you really need to use webmin to change the home directory permissions, you can always use the 'Command Shell' (under 'Others')

chmod -R 777 /home/me
chown -R me2.me2 /home/me

man chmodman chown

if you are not familiar with the commands.

You might be able to do these things via the "Filemanager" module for webmin. Most of the modules can be installed directly using apt-get, but you can also get them from the webmin site and download them from there.
