VPN/IPsec solutions might also be considered in order to restrict access from the Internet
to only those able to establish a secure session... That would restrict the number of users
who would be able to probe the webmail gizmo.

I rather imagined he wanted to avoid that the general public gets to see the login page. It's
fairly easy to allow from intranet and deny from internet. However, I take you point that
the OP will probably come back with a requirement that, in addition to the above, Joe Bloggs
must be allowed access from anywhere. At that point it does indeed move out of apache and
into the application layer (ie, the webmail gizmo).
