Custom Mailbox Template Feature

New Access template permission is introduced, named as "Allow custom mailbox template", which is not allowed by default. If allowed in access template/permission all subscriptions under that customer/reseller will see a node "Custom" in Mailbox template dropdown (add/edit mailbox, mailbox group actions).

If "custom" selected in add/edit Mailbox or via group action, all effected Mailboxes will see "Advanced"tab (like no mailbox template is applied ever), new mailbox settings will be according to plan/add-on resources. Edit mailbox (created using mailbox template previously) feature selected via access template will be shown in Advanced tab (This will just set template as custom, nothing will be changed, but visible in edit interface to change if custom is selected.).

We should be able to set existing mailboxes template to Custom using "Group Action" Feature.
