I've been searching the interwebs for a definite solution to this somewhat essential aspect of configuring a hosting platform. I have yet to find a solution with proper confirmation, so I was hoping I could get one here.
many posts also mentions and as i've experienced myself that the ultimate server guide topic 20.2 does not work
What I would like to accomplish is, for each created site have a redirection from a subdomain to the webmail interface. To make it clear.
webmail.domain.tld points to domain.tld/webmail
As I have understood so far is that in order to enable this, first off you will have to modify the squirrelmail.conf (or what have you) file as follows:
second you will have to make a subdomain in ISPconfig3 as follows for each domain:
Redirect Type R,L
Redirect Path http://domain.tld/webmail/
While this works, I can't stop to think that there must be a 'smarter' or automated way of accomplishing this? A way that does not include manually adding the subdomains for each domain.
sorry if this question is trite, but hopefully it can become a quick guide, sticky, or a wiki entry to shine light on this topic (so often asked)
