    In plain English I would like to tell my clients the value of AutoSSL for a simple css/html website (not templated) and how it may make their email (webmail) safer, and are emails then less likely to end up in someone's spam on junk box.. is this true? Thanks anyone.

    The value of SSL (TLS) for a simple website is that Google uses SSL as a ranking signal (of course only 1 out of 10000 other signals, but still, it’s good).
    SSL alone on a site is not going to make any difference in being marked as a spammer or not.

    Hello @Neri Kristina,

    The following section of our SSL FAQ document provides the best answer to this question:

    What is SSL/TLS

    While many of those benefits don't apply to a website like the one you described (simple HTML content), search engines such as Google use SSL as a ranking signal as explained in the previous post.

    As for your other question, authenticating over SSL for services such as cPanel, WHM, or Webmail ensures the authentication details are encrypted during the transmission of data in the web browser. However, the use of SSL won't help to prevent outgoing email from ending up in the SPAM or JUNK folder. We provide a document that offers tips on how to help prevent that from happening:

    How to Keep your Email Out of the Spam Folder - cPanel Knowledge Base - cPanel Documentation

    Let us know if we can help answer any additional questions.

    Thanks!
