Absolute links - those beginning with a / - are the bane of reverse
proxying.  As soon as an absolute path is specified, it must be accessible
on the frontend server.  Sometimes a bit of lateral thinking can help,

Is it possible to install the webmail software to a different path on your
backend server - ie, /webmail/ instead of /src/ ?  This neatly sidesteps
the issue, but isn't always an option.
