How to have SSL on two different pages/sites?

I have a problem getting a few domains/pages to use SSL/https.
Currently I have webmail and crm program that I wanted to use SSL/https.

Below are my configuration and findings on my own troubleshooting.
Hope some one will be able to help me.

The SSL cert, key, etc has been made.

my httpd.conf file
<Location /var/www/htdocs/crm/>

<Location /var/www/htdocs/webmail/src/login.php>

my mod_ssl.conf
<VirtualHost _default_:443>
# General setup for the virtual host
DocumentRoot "/var/www/htdocs/webmail"
[other lines deleted - for easier reading]

DocumentRoot "/var/www/htdocs/crm"
[other lines deleted - for easier reading]

Settings 1 - with the above
- crm can be access via https
- webmail cannot be access via https

Settings 2 - remark crm in httpd.conf
- crm can be access via https
- webmail cannot be access via https

Settings 3 - remark crm in mod_ssl.conf
- crm cannot be access via https
- webmail can be access via https

- where should I put the configuration? httpd.conf or mod_ssl.conf?
- how can I make both crm and webmail to use https?

I am using apache 1.3.27 running on slackware 9.0 kernel 2.4.20

In order to run two different sites on the same port, you must have two IP addresses on the system. The problem lies in the fact that the server does not know which certificate to present because the session is encrypted. This does not happen when two IP addresses are used because the server can determine which certificate to present based on the IP address receiving the request. You either got to add another IP address or change the port on one of the applications.
