I have installed a SSL certificate through cPanel to mail.tsgmx.com

Even thought the SSL was successfully installed, Outlook was giving the warning message.

goDaddy (where the dedicated server is hosted) tech installed the SSL for mail.tsgmx.com to the Exim Mail service, and added the SSL to webmail and Dovecot. This too did not help the Outlook warnings.

I ended up deleting the domain (tsgmx.com) rebooting the server, and recreating the domain.

Now I do not have any SSL certificate installed under "Main >> SSL/TLS >> Manage SSL Hosts", yet the Outlook stopped complaining.

Where is my SSL, and if it is not there why is it working?

Thank you for your time and patience....

Hello :)

The SSL certificate installed on your domain name should be stored in one of the following locations:

Code:
/etc/ssl/certs
Code:
/home/username/ssl/certs
You may want to try reinstalling the certificate using the following option:

"WHM >> Service Configuration >> Manage Service SSL Certificates"

The certificate for services such as Exim are installed separately using:

"WHM >> Service Configuration >> Manage Service SSL Certificates"

Thank you.

Hello,

I did actually want to mention that Service SSL Certificates are actually stored at the following location instead, since these are services rather than the Apache certificates (Apache certificates are stored in /etc/ssl/certs area):

Code:
/var/cpanel/ssl
Services such as cPanel/WHM/Webmail, courier, dovecot, exim and ftp are all stored at that /var/cpanel/ssl location for those certificates.

Thanks!
