Question Help With Squirrelmail Configuration

I have Squirrelmail / Apache2 installed on my Debian server. Everything appears to be working perfectly. I am able to hit the login page from a web browser and login to webmail no problem.

The issue is that in order to bring up webmail in my browser, I need to go to the following URL:

Now when I copied /etc/squirrelmail/apache.conf and appended that data to /etc/apache2/apache.conf.

I found a section that says:

# users will prefer a simple URL like
  DocumentRoot /usr/share/squirrelmail
Now I added the correct IP for my server shown above and the server name actually the URL I want to create for Squirrelmail.

Basically it is now working and I am not sure if I am missing something.

If it's working, I don't see anything you might be missing but that's hard to tell since I don't think anyone here is using your Squirrelmail..

well, if it is working, sounds good. If you want it all looked over, you might want to post the code of all your files. But squirrelmail is pretty much an easy set up once you alias a directory..or as you did, docroot it (not sure if that is so safe, but i could be wrong)

so, if it is working, be happy. You did it.
