By default root is forbidden to access mail through pop3/imap for security reasons. Root can login in the system and use a CLI utility to read his mail.

If you still want to allow access to webmail for root, you need to read your imap server documentation, to see if it can be done.
AFAIK dovecot for example does not allow root login
Quote:
# Valid UID range for users, defaults to 500 and above. This is mostly
# to make sure that users can't log in as daemons or other system users.
# Note that denying root logins is hardcoded to dovecot binary and can't
# be done even if first_valid_uid is set to 0.
#first_valid_uid = 500
#last_valid_uid = 0
Regards
