Dreamhost Pannel > Mail > Webmail
Change Webmail location: http(s)://[ mail ].dabritz.org/ (changed from [ webmail ] to [ mail ] in the text box.
Gives the following error:
“Invalid: mail.dabritz.org is already being used elsewhere!”
mail.dabritz.org would be the base url in use

I am already aware that there is a some sort of default mail service at http://mail.dabritz.org/. Please note two important problems. This is ONLY http, not https secure mail. http://webmail.dabritz.org/ and https://webmail.dabritz.org/ both behave as I would like mail.dabritz.org to behave. At the bottom of every squirrel mail login page, users are pointed to http://mailboxes.dabritz.org to manage mailbox settings (this URL isn’t a problem). On that page there are two ‘Check your email on the web’ links, one for secure and one not. Both point to the webmail.dabritz.org pages.
What I would like to happen:
No more webmail.dabritz.org anything, all of it should be on mail.dabritz.org, and handled that way. It’s more consistant and less to remember. Judging by the above, the ‘webmail’ and ‘mail’ domains are pointed to different servers, which seems odd. Does anyone know why? I don’t believe I have done anything unusual set up wise, and it’s all been through the control pannel for email related things. Aditionally, it would be nice if users were sent to (or at least linked to from a warning) the HTTPS:// page when trying to use the insecure HTTP:// page.
So I would appreciate any thoughts about making this set up work the way I would like, and what is possible/easy and impossible/hard. Thank you in advance for your helpful responses!
