Hi,
I am trying to use wildcard certificate on IMAP\POP services and require some help.
I'm using the following commands:
set-imapsettings -X509CertificateName mail.domain.com
set-popsettings -X509CertificateName mail.domain.com
enable-exchangecertificate -services POP,IMAP -thumbprint

And the result is:
Warning:
This certificate with thumbprint 0A02849AA284B4DB1D1670DCA1C6310BA7241864 and subject '*.domain.com' cannot used for POP SSL/TLS connections because the subject is not a Fully Qualified Domain Name (FQDN). Use command Set-POPSettings to set X509CertificateName to the FQDN of the service.

to the FQDN of the service.

Can you please advice?

you get those two warnings when running the enable-exchangecertificate, right?

the thing is.. you dont need to run the enable exchangecertificate.. you just need to set the pop and imapsettings with the fqdn that the users will connect to... after you've imported the certificate. please test and post the results.

Hi,

Thanks, I'm not sure that I completely understood it.
The certificate was imported and it is in use by IIS services.
The FQDN was set for pop\imap, now, I don't need to enable the certificate to have IMAP\POP with SSL?

We replaced the wildcard with SAN certificate and everything works.

none of the other solutions worked, so we bought SAN certificate.
