Using subdomain for Web mail?


Recommended Posts

I'm setting up a new domain for a friend, and I'd like her to be able to check her Web-based mail (preferably SquirrelMail) via a subdomain --http://mymail.juliecalkins.com -- rather than the long, full path.


When I set up the mymail subdomain and point it to, say, https://www.juliecalkins.com:2096/3rdparty/...lmail/index.php (or *any* page), all I get is that "Index of /" page with links to the parent directory and cgi-bin.


Why can't I get it to redirect. I tried pointing it to a variety of places, and even tried other subdomains (test.juliecalkins.com), but no luck.


I'm sure it's something simple and stupid, but can't figure it out. Help!

I'm not where I can do much research on it, but have you tried: mymail.juliecalkins.com/sqmail yet? That should jump to the right place for you. Without the sqmail ending it is trying to go to a website that is at the subdomain and you don't have one, apparently.

I just reread your original post and what I suggested won't work. I misunderstood what you were trying to do. I think the way I would attack this is to create a page at ******/mail.html that is a regular web page with a redirect to ******/sqmail and then all she has to do is go to ******/mail and click the link and log in.


There may be a better way with redirects but if nothing better comes along this should work.

I can't seem to get this embedding thing to work - I keep getting "page not found error"? Suggestions....


Here is my code as suggested....



<script language="JavaScript" type="text/javascript">


function squirrelmail_loginpage_onload() {

document.forms[0].js_autodetect_results.value = '1';


// -->





<form method="post" action="http://www.safefresh.com/sqmail/src/redirect.php">

<input type="hidden" name="js_autodetect_results" value="0">

User: <input type="text" name="login_username" size="10">

Password: <input type="password" name="secretkey" size="10">

<input type="submit" value="Login">
