It is EXTREMELY bad netiquette to quote the ENTIRE DIGEST when you're
replying to a single message.  Furthermore, you didn't even indicate
which message that you were replying to so we really have no idea what
you're talking about.  Please learn how to quote properly.

After searching through all those **** emails in your reply, I finally
realized you're the one that's doing reverse proxying with mod_rewrite
intstead of how you should be doing it with mod_proxy.  Note the key
word *reverse* proxy.  It requires no special end-user configuration. 
All the proxying is done on the server side.  I suggest you take a look
at the documentation for "ProxyPass" and "ProxyPassReverse".  They
implement exactly what you're trying to do with mod_rewrite.
