Thanks in advance.

I'm not sure of the details of your configuration, But I've found using virtual hosts to be pretty straight forward. I'm set up so that "webmail" and "www" are the same machine and have had no problems. Check out "Section 3: Virtual Hosts" in your apache config file.

installation specific details shown below include:
domain:  dogstar-interactive.com
mailhost: webmail
squirrel mail directory: /usr/share/squirrelmail

1. load mod_dir enabled for directory indices and libphp4 for squirrelmail
LoadModule dir_module /usr/lib/apache/1.3/mod_dir.so
LoadModule php4_module /usr/lib/apache/1.3/libphp4.so

2.  enable virtual hosting.

3. set up a virtual host for squirrelmail (interpret index.php as directory)
  ServerAdmin rich@dogstar-interactive.com
  DocumentRoot /usr/share/squirrelmail/
  ErrorLog /var/log/apache/webmail.dogstar-interactive.com-error.log
CustomLog /var/log/apache/webmail.dogstar-interactive.com-access.log common
  ServerName webmail.dogstar-interactive.com
<IfModule mod_dir.c>
    DirectoryIndex index.php

4.  restart apache.
