Our router/firewall does allow for this but as was stated in the other posts (look in the
vhost.conf that i posted) webserver answers for port 80 and the webmail server answers for
port 8080. So when users type in webmail.some-domain.tld, this goes to the webserver and not
the webmail server (these users have trouble remembering to type :8080 at the end of the address
which results in help desk calls). Just so you know, we use a Juniper/Netscreen router/firewall.
