Default SSL for mail.* but still be able to use SSL for every domain

i want to secure the communication with my webmail interface. therefore i added the attached code (1) to the 000-default vhost file.
when enabling SSL for a domain i get a error message:
warn] _default_ VirtualHost overlap on port 443, the first has precedence
is there any way i can configure my system to allow both encryption for webmail and for the domains?

i use mail.<anydomainonmyserver.com>/webmail as interface for all my customers.

thanks in advance, giftsnake

<VirtualHost *:80> .... nothing changed here </VirtualHost>
<VirtualHost *:443> same as above plus:
<IfModule mod_ssl.c>
SSLEngine On
SSLCertificateFile /etc/apache2/ssl/server.crt
SSLCertificateKeyFile /etc/apache2/ssl/server.key

The above configuration will not work as ssl certs are domain specific and every user will get a error message that a wrong ssl cert is used.

Better create a website mail.yourcompany.com and then tell your customers to use this central web interface.

Get ISPConfig support and the ISPConfig 3 manual from ispconfig.org.
