From what I have seen we should be able to mimic the same functionality by creating a subdomain under the websites and redirecting it to an external site. So I setup a subdomain and set the redirection to the site but it just keeps showing the same homepage for the main domain. I have tried the different flags and confirmed the changes are being made in the vhost.

Is there anything else I should look at or try to see why this isn't working?

This should work by creating a subdomain.

1) Create a dns a-record for webmail.domain.tld pointing to the same IP address the the website where you want to create the subdomain.
2) Add a subdomain webmail.domain.tld and select as redirect type "No Flag" and enter as redirect path "".
