This is what i have been trying to do all along through mod_alias :)

This is what the users enter into their browsers:

>Redirect /webmailprog
This is what i have in my vhost.conf file:
    RedirectPermanent /
And as stated, this does not work. It takes you to the "root" site. So, where does your redirect
go (in which file)? I am entering into the vhost.conf file.

OK, so what i did was use your Redirect /webmailprog
under their web virtualhost and it now works. Notice i was trying to accomplish a different
syntax of address: http://webmail.some-domain.tld to redirect to http://webmail.some-domain.tld:8080.
This did not work.
