    Hi all

    I am busy setting up a new ISPC server...

    A issue I have with clients is that they tend to go to mail.domain.tld when they want to access their webmail.

    I would like to make mail.domain.tld display the contents of mail.domain.tld/webmail

    I can easily get mail.domain.tld to redirect to domain.tld/webmail, but would prefer the former.

    I have setup a website called mail.domain.tld and in the document root, I have created a .htaccess file. In the file I have the following...

    RewriteEngine on
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^domain.tld$ [NC,OR]
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^www.domain.tld$
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !webmail/
    RewriteRule (.*) /webmail [L]
    Alas it does not furnish the results I am looking for. Any advice?

    Try using a proxy instead.

    Thanks @till
    I will give that a try and revert.

    Nope, did the exact thing as 301 Redirect. Simply changed the address to domain.tld/webmail...

    Using a proxy should work. I know that several users use it that way.

    What is wrong with this?
    This is weirder.

    What you may want, I think, if I understand you correctly is the content of the webmail in that mail.domain.tld.

    IMV you should just install webmail app in that subdomain root or change its root to where you already have it now. Does this made better sense?

    Or perhaps you can explain further because after reading your posts above, I still don't quite understand you fully.

    @ahrasis That sounds like slavery with extra steps, when Roundcube is already present.
    I settled on setting a redirect that just diverts to the main server FQDN/webmail.

    It is functional and clients won't know the difference
