You appear to be looking at the top-level apache error log. You need
to look at the error log for your webmail virtual host (ErrorLog
logs/mail.xxxx-error_log) to see the errors that result when you get
the /webmail/ Forbidden.

The issue that you have presented so far is (browser) access to
webmail. This is unrelated to qmailtoaster.
