We were asked to enable TLS for one customer so I read a few guides on configuring TLS on Exchange 2003 and so far Ive got it working Outbound as far as I can tell. Ive got my SMTP Connector setup to send emails through a Virtual server with the Certificate installed on etc and emails seem to make their way out of the queue with TLS enabled so I assume it must be working?
My questions are more related to inbound emails and what the SMTP certificate should be called. Currently the certificate we bought simply has the name of the server. It does not have the internal domain or the FQDN.
Currently the certificate is as follows:
Using hotmail.com as an example can someone clear up what the certificate should have on it? The mx certificate is mx1.hotmail.com (again thats an example :P) so what should the TLS certificate be called? SERVERNAME.hotmail.com? Or something else?
As for inbound emails, because I want to leave the regular SMTP Virtual server working for all other emails from other domains I assume I will have to setup a separate IP to receive inbound emails? They will only be coming in from one customer so Im assuming the emails have to come in the same way they went out which is through the TLS enabled Virtual Server?
