Default howto webmail.domain.com

I have installed ispconfig 3.0.1.4 , and during installation I entered internal domain. so the server is now server.domain.int

how can i create webmail.domain1.com or www.domain1.com/webmail ?

Can I use one domain to provide access to webmail to all the other domains. ?

I've tried creating a subdomain called webmail.domain1.com and creating a symbolic link to the squirrelmail directory but that does not work, I'm not even sure if this is the right way to do this.

Thanks in advance

Hello,

If you were to browse to http://ip_of_server/webmail I'm going to assume that you get the squirrel mail interface.

If this is the case then there are a couple of very simple ways in which we can make a FQDN to point at the webmail.

The easiest and quickest way would be to add a server alias to the default config file in /etc/apache2/sites-available. E.g:

ServerAlias webmail.example.com

Then restart apache - /etc/init.d/apache2 restart

This will result in http://webmail.example.com/webmail now showing the webmail interface (provided you configure DNS to point webmail.example.com to point to the server's IP address).

The other option is to create a new virtual host called webmail.example.com and point the document root to /var/www/webmail. That way http://webmail.example.com will point directly at the webmail interface.

If you need any advice on configuring a new virtual host to perform this operation then let me know.

Thanks
