    Hi,

    When I access my webmail by webmail.domain.com, it is a http connection... any way to have an https instead?

    Thanks

    If you are not the server administrator, an alternative method is to type https://domain:2096 into your web browser, where domain represents your domain.

    I'm the server administrator.
    Your solution with the 2096 works, but I would like to enforce https for webmail, and I'm unable to do this.

    In tweak settings, I have checked the "Always redirect users to the ssl/tls ports when visiting /cpanel, /webmail, etc" but :

    1/ When I access webmail.mydomain.com, it does not redirect me to the https version, I stay on http
    2/ If I do https://webmail.mydomain.com I have an error, unable to continue.

    I guess I miss some settings for my "subdomain" webmail, to handle ssl, perhaps because the webmail port is not the standard https port ;) How can I fix this ?

    Another thing, I would like to enforce my users to use pop3s and imaps instead of pop3 and imap, so I can disable the standard version.

    What I find strange though is that when I enter webmail and click on the mail client parameters section, I have those lines :

    Serveur de courier entrant mail.mydomain.com
    Serveur de courier entrant (SSL) geg-rbx.ovh.net
    Serveur de courrier sortant :mail.mydomain.com (le serveur exige une authentification) port 25
    Serveur de courrier sortant : (SSL) mail.root (le serveur exige une authentification) port 465

    How comes I have such strange behaviours for the SSL version of the pop3 and smtp? I would like mail.mydomain.com for the SSL versions. How can I fix this? Those geg-rbx.ovh.net and mail.root are wrong ;)

    Thanks

    The reverse proxy does not support being forced onto HTTPS at this time. Users should be using domain.com/webmail to be logging into their webmail. Keep in mind the reverse proxy is designed for users who may only have web access over port 80 and be behind a firewall so strict as to possibly not allow traffic over port 443 (HTTPS).

    We do not natively support this at this time, though firewalling the ports used for plain-text communications for these protocols should be effective at forcing your users to use POP3S and IMAPS.

    Did you install a service SSL certificate for POP3 and IMAP at some point? If you did, that would explain the different hostnames - it would be using the hostname on the SSL certificate.

    Does reverse proxy (ie. proxy subdomains) work with SSL redirection now ?

    I could've sworn I had it working until recently migrating boxes but now it doesn't work with the cpanel.userdomain.com webmail.userdomain.com urls unly with userdomain.com/cpanel etc
