Hi

I want to secure only webmail as a service but not for any specific domain name. Is it possibile using one certificate? I suppose that is, because /webmail/ alias points on same address (location on disc). Which kind of certificate do I need to buy?
I have allready a certificate generated by server but I want to use one affordable.

How to install it?

thanks

I was planning on doing this. Just haven't gotten around to it.

Setup an account like securemail.servername.com
Add customized Squirrelmail to this account.
Create SSL for https://securemail.servername.com (self-signed or super cheap)

Then, redirect all accounts so domain.com/mail/ goes to the special, secure mail.
It wouldn't have access to the cpanel 'change password' and stuff, but that's ok. A customized SquirrelMail is more important than the cpanel stuff.

When I tired to do this quickly a while back, I ran into a problem with the redirect. I was trying to put it in httpd.conf, but for some reason I couldn't get it to work.

Has anyone else done something similar? Maybe I'll finally do it by 2008.

But this means that for every domain I need to use different certificate? All domains are on the same IP, how could I do it?
It will be the same certificate for all domains that are accessed though 2096 port (a /webmail/ redirects to it).

If you want to install custom SquirrelMail and run it under secured account, you will need to install certificate for domain that account is on. For that reason go to Web SSL/TLS in your WHM.
