    Client wants to setup email on their iPad and trying to get some kind of SSL to run. Found below post from April 2009. Is this still the case with SSL?

    I know we can use the server SSL but wanted to see about using

    Hello :)

    Yes, we still only support a single SSL certificate for Dovecot/Courier and Exim. This is managed via:

    "WHM Home » Service Configuration » Manage Service SSL Certificates"

    Thus, you should use the hostname of your server if possible, and have all of your users configure their email clients with SSL for that hostname. Beyond that, you are welcome to submit a feature request to add support for multiple service certificates. Our feature request system can be found at:

    Thank you.

    As a data point, I have our customers still use, even when setting up SSL email. Yes, they will get an SSL error the FIRST time they send/receive mail... they can click "yes" or "ok" or "accept this certificate" or whatever... then they are good to go.

    If you hard code the server's name, then you better not ever change the server's name or move the customer to one of your other servers, because then they are going to have to reconfigure all their machines and devices.

    Leaving it as will allow them to be moved to a different server without the customer reconfiguring anything. Yes, they will get another "certificate mismatch" error the FIRST time they send/receive with the new server... but again, they save the exception, and all done.

    Your mileage may vary. Just another angle for you to consider.
