Secure squirrelmail with ssl

To secure squirrelmail, edit the following file and edit it to look like below.

vi /etc/httpd/conf.d/squirrelmail.conf

Alias /webmail /usr/share/squirrelmail

<Directory “/usr/share/squirrelmail”>
Options Indexes MultiViews
AllowOverride None
Order deny,allow
Deny from all
Allow from all

Thats it.

NB: Remember now the only way to access mail is by https://……../webmail not http://……/webmail otherwise you get a nice page saying Forbidden!
