Hi all,

 I'm having a problem with apache2 directory aliases .
I'm trying to setup a /mail alias point apache to /home/mail where my
web mail client is.

In the apache.conf file I have:

alias /mail /home/mail 

   This worked fine with apache 1?!

but now I get a 403 forbidden error
and the error log states:

[Fri May 09 07:24:14 2003] [error] [client] client denied
by server configuration: /home/mail/

I've tried variations on the alias such as enclosing in quotes, adding
ending slashes, etc.. 

permissions are set as so:
drwxr-xr-x    2 apache   apache       4096 May  9 07:18 mail/

I've googled and tried to solve this but I think its something I'm

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
