    To redirect example.com/webmail to webmail.example.com, follow these steps:
    On the webserver, create a config file for Apache:
    Code:
    nano /etc/apache2/conf-available/roundcube-redir.conf
    and put this in there:
    Code:
    Redirect /webmail https://webmail.example.com
    Then enable the config:
    Code:
    a2enconf roundcube-redir
    and reload Apache2
    Code:
    systemctl reload apache2
    Now, if you go to example.com/webmail, you will be redirected to webmail.example.com (with a 302 redirect).


    Replace example.com with your own domain :)

    For nginx:
    Code:
    rewrite ^(/webmail/)(.*)$ http://webmail.example.com/$2 permanent;

    I suggest changing this to
    Code:
    rewrite ^/webmail$ https://webmail.example.com redirect;
    for the following reasons:
    - Temporary redirect instead of permanent - in case your client moves to a different hosting company
    - Redirect to https instead of http
    - Redirect /webmail instead of /webmail/

    To create the site "webmail.example.com":
    - Create DNS record for webmail.example.com
    - Create site webmail.example.com, enable Let's Encrypt, disable auto subdomain
    - Under the tab "Options", add this to Apache directives:
    Code:
    DocumentRoot "/var/lib/roundcube/public_html"
    Alias "/stats" "/var/www/webmail.example.com/web/stats"
