    OK, so I have now been battling with this system for some weeks, and I still cannot get it to do what I want in a manner I feel is normal.

    Heres what I am after.

    Web hosting.
    Mail hosting.
    No problems so far.

    Now I want customers who have there websites hosted on my server to be able to access there email via a webmail client (roundcude/squirrelmail).
    So I set things up as mentioned in articles found on howtoforge. That doesn't seem to be working for me.

    Problem:
    The way it is configured clients don't seem to get access to their email via their own site.
    IE. if there is a site www.mysite.com then the client should be able to access their email at webmail.mysite.com

    I also would like this to be setup automatically and not have to manually set it up every time a new site is setup.

    Please forgive me if I have this all wrong, but i don't have to many smarts when it comes to this sort of thing, and I have read so much stuff found on the Internet that my head is probably so full of irrelavent BS that it isn't helping.

    Simple instructions like;
    Install ISPconfig.
    Do this.
    Do that
    enjoy

    Are the best instructions.

    Any comments would be most helpfull.

    Regards

    Fred

    Create a DNS A-Record for webmail.mysite.com pointing to the IP address of your server. Then create a new website with:

    hostname: webmail
    domain: mysite.com

    and install a webmail client of your choice into that site. e.g. roundcube as described here:
