I know I can do this by returning a page with the appropriate form
Just the ones you have already dismissed. If you want the browser to do
this, you have to send a request to the browser. There is no way you
can not have the server do this for the browser.
You can have the server do this and send the results to the browser, but
this is the options you have dismissed.
Once the form is submitted and you have confirmed that the information entered is correct, display another form with the username and password in hidden form fields, named appropriately to match the webmail login form. The action of that form should also match the action of the webmail login form. Then add something like <body onload="document.form.submit()"> and you will forward the user to the webmail app, submitting the username and password just as if they did it normally, with the exception that the referrer will not be correct. Hopefully the app doesn't check for that.
sigh.. sorry Ian, that's the second time I've done that. Not trying to rewrite your thoughts, you've managed to reply to two threads at the same time I'm typing I think.
edit: well, now that I actually read the posts, I see my issue.. clearly my lunch hour has gone for to long.

Not a problem. More likely it is the delay in the system for us
newsreader users. Our replies may not show up in the web forum for 15
to 30 minutes after we send them according to the newsgroup FAQ.
Not trying to rewrite your thoughts,...
Actually I would not have minded if you could have rewritten this one:
"There is no way you can not have the server do this for the browser."
That is not my best composed sentence. I believe I wanted to say
"There is no way you can have the server do this for the browser."
