I went into httpd.conf and modified the alias for Squirrelmail and the the change isn't taking effect.
The default was listed as
Alias /squirrelmail /var/www/html/squirrelmail/

I modified it to
Alias /mail /var/www/html/squirrelmail/

Does DA have something that would prevent this from working?

Thanx from a DA newbie.

UPDATE:
I FOUND A WORK AROUND...
THANK YOU.

Any time you change the httpd.conf file you must restart the httpd server.

Either stop and start the server as follows while logged in as root (note that the "#" at the beginning of the line should NOT be typed; it means "do this as root"):

# service httpd restart

Or restart it from the control panel.

Restarting apache

Restarting apache after moding the httpd.conf file is a given....I did that and it still hadn't worked.

But thanx for the help.
