Default ispconfig3 and squirrel mail client

Guy's

I know this has been asked a dozen times before but i have not been able to find a clear answer.

Here is the scenario,

the mail client is accessed through the main domain of the webserver and all the clients need to be directed there for webmail access. this is how it is now.

What i need is for the client domain to have access to web mail at clientdomain.com/webmail and not the main server domain.

the other thing needed is for the address in the browser to show clientdomain/webmail, when i redirect the address bar shows the main domain/webmail

Is there a way to make this happen that is clearly described ?

thank you
tony

Have you thought about making an HTML file in yourdom.com/webmail that consists of a frame set? You can then load maindom.com/webmail into the main body frame causing the original URL to be still displayed in the address bar?

I give that a try. Really had not considered that approach. I will let you know how it works out.

As of an hour ago - yes.
Previously I was on 3.0.1.6.

if your webmail/ directory is in /var/www/ and your client's root web directory is in /var/www/clients/client1/client1web/
then just type:
Code:
ln -s /var/www/webmail/ /var/www/clients/client1/client1web/webmail
Then when your client goes to www.client1web.com/webmail they'll get the squirrel mail login screen
