    I have a client who was on a ded server with Plesk who had an ssl cert setup for their site for "mail.domain.com". He asked me to do the same for him on my linux/cpanel server.

    The thing is, I have no idea where to start. If I get this client an ssl cert for mail.domain.com, do I put it in a different place on the server-- a different directory? I know that cpanel has a default cert for secure smtp on port 465. Is what this client is asking for practical?

    At this time, we only support 1 SSL certificate for Dovecot/Courier and Exim. You can install certificates for Exim as well as Dovecot (or Courier if you are using Courier) at WHM -> Service Configuration -> Manage Service SSL Certificates. This means to avoid domain mis-match errors being generated by the mail clients, all domains on the server that are using SSL for their mail will need to use that customer's domain as that's the domain with the SSL certificate for mail.
