    I have found that the redirect from webmail.domain.tld to domain.tld:2095 (the webmail port of cPanel) may not work on all servers.

    So here's a simple .htaccess rule which you can set at the root of a cPanel account so it can affect all add-on domains and best of all, it does not have a hardcoded domain on it :)

    # Redirect webmail.domain.tld to domain:2095 for cPanel Webmail only
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^webmail\.(.+)$ [NC]
    RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://%1/webmail/$1 [R=301,L]
    This will make sure webmail.domain.tld is redirected to domain.tld/webmail which in turn cPanel will push to domain:2095 - aka your webmail login. :)


    P.S. If your domain.tld/webmail is not redirecting properly, just go to WHM's "Tweak Settings", scroll down to the "Redirection" section and make sure "Always redirect users to the ssl/tls ports when visiting /cpanel, /webmail, etc." is not selected. I've seen this occur on VPS.NET for the record.
