    I'm trying to setup mail.mydomain.com as a secure email domain but I can't figure out how to get pop3 connections (and IMAP I assume) to use the correct certificate.

    I dont want to use the server certificate as this is set to mydomain.com, which is where the problem lies I think.

    Ive tried editing my stunnel.conf to point to a different certificate but I still get the warning popping up in my mail client. (I followed these instructions http://www.freessl.com/resources/install/rapidssl/stunnel.htm )

    How I can get this working?

    Another issue I have is that when I rebooted the server the stunnel config file had be reset to the original settings. not the new settings, is there a way to stop this?

    Thanx

    Those path for the ssl cert arent right for cpanel...

    path's are:
    /usr/share/ssl/certs/
    /usr/share/ssl/private/
    /home/username/ssl/


    Good luck

    Thanx for the cert locations. I still can not get this to work. editing the stunnel.conf file doesnt seam to make any difference. The only thing that does work is changing the server certificate through WHM. But for me this is no good as I want to used the domain mail.mydomain.com for mail only and a different domain for secure cpanel.

    UPDATE:

    After being told by several people what I wanted to do was impossible I decided to give up....

    I noticed the other day that my cpanel cert. is set to mail.mydomain.com and my secure mail connections cert. is set to bingo.mydomain.com (bingo being the servers name). This is the opposite of what I want, but it shows that it is, somehow, possible to have different certs for cpanel and email.

    How this happened I have no idea. I have a suspicion it was due to a cpanel update I did. When I get time I am going to look into this matter and see if I can find out how to swap them round to the way I want.
