Hi Henry,
With the changes list wise, i. e. names not provided, I may have missed 
your  offer.
your restrictions are perfectly fine so I will  share a few details.
I doubt this will require more than a day, even more than an hour.
My client does not use email address formats. Instead it is user name 
I share that because I am unsure if vps structures prevent that kind of 
the most important need, with all else  for a shell  server being constant 
is that the port be anything but  port 22.
frankly a real server instead of a vps might be best, as we are used to 
our shared hosting with dreamhost.
I am privately at klewellen at
Drop me a private note and we can pull this together.
as to timing, you are doing me a favor.   so long as we are on the same 
page  regarding my actual need, I can wait.
