Default webmail in clients web folder

how can i make a link to the webmail folder in a clients web directory so that on their domain they can access webmail too..like www.example.client.com/webmail
if i could ftp to my ubuntu server as root i could probably do it but i logged into my server as a local account and tried to make the link in the clients web directory but access was denied. i logged in as the client but do not have permission to make links to other directorys as that account. so whats the best fix for this?

Something like this:

RewriteEngine on
RewriteCond    %{REQUEST_FILENAME}  -d
RewriteRule    ^(.+[^/])$           $1/  [R]
RewriteRule   ^/webmail https://your.ispconfig.dns.name:81/roundcubemail [R,L]
In the Apache Directives field of the site would do it

You can try the Alias directive: http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.2/mod...ias.html#alias

Would that alias be created in: /etc/apache2/mods-available/alias.conf ?

I am running ISPConfig 3. My server at is get redirected to the /src/login.php page. But none of my websites work that way.

Example- 88888.com/webmail

Any direction would be appreciated!
