Hello,

I want to ask that how can I install/configure TLS certificate on shared IP for a specific domain. Basically I have setup a certificate for the domain but while testing on checktls.com I have recieving the below mention error:

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[001.628] Cert NOT VALIDATED: self signed certificate
[001.629] So email is encrypted but the domain is not verified
[001.630] Cert Hostname DOES NOT VERIFY (example.com != server1.myserver.com)
[001.799] So email is encrypted but the host is not verified
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Please let me help that how to fix this issue.

Thanks,

Hello :)

The message you pasted indicates you installed a self-signed certificate. You will need to purchase a commercial signed certificate from a trusted provider and then install it to avoid that warning.

Thank you.

Hello!

I just installed new certificate for my WHM and I'm getting similar errors:
Cert Hostname DOES NOT VERIFY (DOMAIN != HOSTNAME on my certificate)

Is there a way to use a single SSL on dovecot to stop SSL errors?

Hello!

I used HOSTNAME of my certificate as MX record for all domains and it worked out.

I am happy to see you were able to resolve the issue. Yes, it's important to note that SSL certificates are installed on the service as a whole. Per-domain certificates for services such as Exim or Dovecot are not currently supported.

Thank you.
