Hi Marco,

I haven't used rewriting in SSL-servers, but it should work like this:

	RewriteEngine On
	RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} !^www.domain.com [NC]
	RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !^/webmail [NC] 
	RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} !^$
	RewriteRule ^/(.*) http://www.domain.com/$1 [L,R]
	RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} !^www.domain.com [NC]
	RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} ^/webmail [NC] 
	RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} !^$
	RewriteRule ^/(.*) https://www.domain.com/$1 [L,R]

With these rules, if you have your SSL virtual hosts separate from your
non-SSL virtual hosts, add those lines to your SSL virtual hosts. Then
http://anything.domain.com/webmail would go to the
http://www.domain.com/webmail, so that might still need special handling
depending on how you want it handled. If you want
http://anything.domain.com/webmail to go to the
https://www.domain.com/webmail then you need to add another rule in
addition to the ones in your non-SSL virtual hosts that are working
right now (before them):

	RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} ^/webmail [NC] 
	RewriteRule ^/(.*) https://www.domain.com/$1 [L,R]

If on the other hand you have your SSL virtual hosts in the same virtual
hosts as your non-SSL virtual hosts, replace the rules which are working
right now with the rules above. The
http://anything.domain.com/webmail would then go to the
https://www.domain.com/webmail. To make the
http://www.domain.com/webmail to go to the
https://www.comain.com/webmail, add those two lines before the other

If you want only https requests to go to the SSL virtual host, then you
can use:

	RewriteCond %{HTTPS} ^on$

to check if the request is https or not.

So once again, depending on your setup and how you want those http vs.
https cases handled, there are a few possibilities :)
