in apache's configuration file use:

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !^/webmail/
RewriteRule ^$ /webmail/ [L]

you need to find your apache's configuration file, it's usually named apache.conf or httpd.conf
check if the configuration loads the mod_rewrite module, if not add proper directives to load it
in that file you need to find the proper <directory> directive for the root directory
in that <directory scope you place:
  RewriteEngine On
  RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !^/webmail/
  RewriteRule ^$ /webmail/ [L]

the meaning is that any request which is not /webmail/ (RewriteCond directive) will be rewritten to /webmail (RewriteRule directive)

i.g. this is not the place to explain completely how apache configuration works, there exist dozend of books and million of websites doing it ;-)

For following description:

the meaning is that any request which is not /webmail/ (RewriteCond directive) will be rewritten to /webmail (RewriteRule directive)

It seems that it is not right? Maybe should be any request which is webmail.xx.xx will be rewritten to xx.xx/webmail

Is my understanding right?

Just because your explaination is not same with my expect or understanding.
I am not sure whether or not it is your mis-writing or my knowledge is error.
Can you clarify the rewrite rule in more detail explaination?

# make a condition for the rewrite:
# check if the URL (which is in the variable %{REQUEST_URI) matches /webmail/ at the beginning (beginning: ^)
# if it does *not* match the condition is true

  RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !^/webmail/

# now, if the condition above was true do the rewrite:
# rewrite an emtpy URL (beginning ^ immediately followed by the end $ ) to /webmail/
# if done, don not continue with rewriterules [L]



  RewriteRule ^$ /webmail/ [L]
