    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    [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.

    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.
