    I am having email dramas with SSL certificate not loading the customers SSL certificate for mail but my domains certificate instead. I wish I could explain the problem but maybe this will help.

    [002.574] So email is encrypted but the host is not verified

    It's possible in the underlying service, Exm, but Cpanel doesn't support it. See: SSL certificate per domain on all services | cPanel Feature Requests

    You can work around this by changing the MX record in the DNS zone to what is says in the test: Cpanel doesn't do this by default because it will cause problems when transferring accounts between servers, keep that in mind.

    Hello :)

    You might be interested in the following feature available with cPanel version 11.48:

    Added support for Mail SNI integration
    For systems that support SNI, you can now enable SNI for a domain during SSL installation. You can also enable or disable SNI for domains that have SSL certificates already installed.

    The 11.48 release notes are available at:

    11.48 Release Notes

    It's currently only available in the "Current" and "Edge" tiers. Information on each tier is available at:

    cPanel & WHM Product Versions and the Release Process

    Thank you.
