with "ip" I assume you mean the numerical IP address.
Please state the exact error (including error message, if there is any)
you get, otherwise it cannot be more than guesswork. Anyway, I can
*guess* two potential issues here:
(a) DNS mapping for the server domain name to the ip address. If the
error messsage in the browser is something like "The server at
server1.domain.com can't be found, because the DNS lookup failed"
(example from Chrome here), this is the problem. Check if the domain
name correctly resolves to the server IP address *at the client*.
(b) Named virtual host in the HTTP server configuration. If you get
other content in the browser instead of the webmail interface, this may
be the problem. Check if there is perhaps the wrong virtual host
configured for that domain name in the server
