    Hope someone can help with the following :)

    That's my zone file. SSL (a 'real' cert) works for everything except connecting to the server via IMAP. In the client I have configured the accounts for

    Do I need another cert for, or can I do something within WHM and the zone file to fix it?

    The main server SSL certificate is considered to be a Service SSL , thus even if the site has a working SSL installed and configured to run normally you will need another certificate for the service so that it would work accordingly as you described above.

    For more information you may review the configuration of all service certificates at :

    As well as generate self signed such certificates

    Hope this helps you.
