Having trouble setting up an ssl certificate on our mailserver
Posted on 2013-05-14
I recently setup SmarterMail 11.1 on a pc running windows 7 pro. Unencrypted pop & smtp work fine but I want to secure communications so I purchased an ssl certificate.
I found a program called SSL Tools that I used to import the certificate into the windows certificate store (I let windows decide where to store the certificate). When I use the tool to verify the certificate it says there was no certificate found.
I followed the SmarterMail help file and went into settings:bindings:ports and setup ports 465,993 & 995 pointing each one to the certificate file, but nothing seems to work.
I have seen references to a web server but we're not using one, this is for a mail server only.
Could it be that we are using windows 7 pro and not windows server? (We only have 30 users so a server os didn't seem necessary)
