Simple answer... no!

You either have to run them on different ports or different IP addresses. Otherwise, the software has no way of knowing which one you're trying to contact. If you make a call to port 80 and both applications are listening, whichever is quickest to respond will.

I would recommmend putting webmail on a different port... say 8080. Then let your users know to use the address: my.url:8080 (i.e. your web addresse followed by a colon (:) and the port number) or you could put a link to that address on your webpage and no one would be the wiser.

Thanks for that.

Do you know of a way to invisibly redirect a user without there knowledge?

Cheers

Yes, but it would ALWAYS redirect them. If they wanted the website instead of mail, they would still be redirected to mail. The server has no way of knowing if you want the website or the mail unless you try to hit different locations. The user's browser HAS to use some form of unique string so that your server knows where to direct the request. Either a different port number, different IP address (i.e. 2 NICS or 2 machines), or a subdirectory (i.e. www.myurl.com for the site and www.myurl.com/webmail for webmail). Your server is not psychic. The client HAS to tell it what information it wants.

PS
You could put a link to automatically run in your code that would open up a second webpage so that whenever anyone hits your website, they would get BOTH the website and webmail.

You can use virtual servers in IIS to serve the web site and redirect to mail on the same machine, as I do. The DNS alias mail.mydomain calls up a different website from www.mydomain, and that website (only) redirects to mydomain:8025 for Kerio. Also https (port 443) goes straight to my Kerio server, as I don't use it in my web server.
