    ok so ive read through the other posts and documentation about autodiscover, i set my

    Host to publish in the SRV records for Outlook autodiscover support > to my own server domain, yet when i try to do autodiscover on a clients site i still get the ssl certificate warning that autodiscover.clientdomain.tld does not match the certificate and if i click cancel it still tries to redirect to cpanelemaildiscovery.cpanel.net

    how do i solve this for all existing and future accounts?

    i also read something about creating different xml files for the different email clients, but honestly this should be built in by now!

    Hello :)

    To clarify, if you manually setup the host that you entered in your email client, does it not produce that same SSL certificate warning?

    Thank you.

    NO, the autodiscover is still pulling autodiscover.clientdomain.tld as opposed the server host address, and since its trying to do an ssl connection it gives the warning (seems to happen the first time only but thats still not acceptable) When I check the xml file it is setting up the hostname correctly in the setup but it seems the inital request goes thorugh the clients domain thus producing the error.

    setting things manually does not create any errors of course it never did, since this is an issue with the autodiscover not my ssl cert.

    Internal case number 111361 was opened to address the issue where the "A" record that is created when using "Thunderbird and Outlook autodiscover and autoconfig support" in "Tweak Settings" causes Outlook to display an SSL certificate mismatch warning. The temporary workaround is to delete the "A" record that's in place for autodiscover.domain.com.

    Thank you.
