Hi,

I'm on a VPS with godaddy. I'm in the cPanel of the domain (myultratrust.com). I have set up the emails and the incoming mail and the outgoing mail server settings work fine for the Non-SSL settings but not the SSL/TLS settings.

this works:
Non-SSL Settings
(NOT Recommended)
Username: 	myusername@myultratrust.com
Password: 	Use the email account’s password.
Incoming Server: 	mail.myultratrust.com

    IMAP Port: 143
    POP3 Port: 110

Outgoing Server: 	mail.myultratrust.com

    SMTP Port: 25

Authentication is required for IMAP, POP3, and SMTP.

Open in new window


this doesn't:
Secure SSL/TLS Settings
(Recommended)
Username: 	myusername@myultratrust.com
Password: 	Use the email account’s password.
Incoming Server: 	ip-184-168-116-73.ip.secureserver.net

    IMAP Port: 993
    POP3 Port: 995

Outgoing Server: 	ip-184-168-116-73.ip.secureserver.net

    SMTP Port: 465

Authentication is required for IMAP, POP3, and SMTP.

Open in new window


Do I need to install a SSL certificate like it states here:
http://docs.cpanel.net/twiki/bin/view/AllDocumentation/WHMDocs/InstallCert

If so, can I use openSSL? I've created openSSL certs before. But then how do I configure it for the incoming and outgoing mail servers using those assigned ports? Or is there some additional setting I need to look at in WHM?

Not sure how to go about securing the incoming and outgoing mail servers for the domain.

Thank you!

SSL Cert with mail server is by-default enabled with every domain under WHM. Please check with service provider by default you have no need to configure.

Hi Sandy,

So if I reissue an SSL Cert (then it's not configured automatically, is it?) I think there are additional steps to take to issue that new certificate with all the registered domains. What are those steps?

No you just need to re-issue if you want and then need to install it..

Ok, just to clarify when you say "re-issue" that means to "create" the new certificates? So "install" would be automatic meaning that there are no additional steps?
