Use mod_proxy and virtual hosts:

NameVirtualHost ip.add.re.ss:80

<VirtualHost ip.add.re.ss:80>
   ServerName www.loop.be
   ProxyPass / http://apache/
   ProxyPassReverse / http://apache/

<VirtualHost ip.add.re.ss:80>
   ServerName mail.loop.be
   ProxyPass / http://domino/
   ProxyPassReverse / http://domino/

You can also use mod_rewrite in there, but using virtual hosts is 
cleaner and more flexible a solution.
