    I followed the Ubuntu 10.10 perfect server guide. The issue I'm having is when I type in website.com/webmail and log in I get the following error.
    Error opening ../config/default_pref
    Could not create initial preference file!
    /var/lib/squirrelmail/data/ should be writable by user www-data
    Please contact your system administrator and report this error.
    If I use website.com:8080/webmail I can log in just fine. Is there a way to configure either ISPConfig or squirrelmail to allow the log in without having to use the ":8080" after the web address?

    Yes I did, it is also listed at the end of the install guide, that is what I followed to enable the Alias /webmail.

    Can you paste the output of
    ls -al /var/lib/squirrelmail/data/
    ls -al /var/lib/squirrelmail/
