This is likely to be an Apache rewrite problem and not, as was 
later suggested, either an php or squirrelmail issue per se.  If 
you want a recipe that works for accessing virtual domains and 
squirrelmail over https (ssl) then you can see my posts at:


However, if you are as inexperienced with apache as you appear to 
be with dns then you need to know that working with mod rewrite is 
not for the faint of heart.  You can begin at:


Further, you need to configure squirrelmail itself to handle 
virtual servers in addition to whatever you do in apache. This 
feature is provided as a squirrelmail plugin.  See:


I consider your questions as entirely appropriate for the CentOS 
mailing list.  This is after all, a distribution, of which bind, 
apache, sendmail, cyrus-imapd, dovecot and squirrelmail are all a 
part, no less important than any other.  When one is setting up a 
new system using unfamiliar software then having ready access to a 
group of people that have already taken the same general path that 
you are on is a tremendous asset.  They are a great source of 
ancillary information regarding package inter-relationships and 
side issues that may not be even considered relevant on application 
specific forums.
