I'll second that emotion, there's plenty of ways to do it, but here's how I did it with Apache2 - edit http.conf and add something like this (change the roundcube path to your own):

<Directory /usr/local/www/data-dist/roundcubemail-cvs>
         RewriteEngine on
         RewriteBase /
         RewriteRule ^.*$ https://%{HTTP_HOST}%{REQUEST_URI} [R=permanent]

You need to have that mod_rewrite vodoo running on Apache for this to work, but work it does.
