I got a Certificate from StartSSL and put the files in /etc/apache2/ssl ca.pem private.key ssl.crt I put the certs and key on the server in the coorrect spot I edited the default file for apachee2 and restarted apache.

I installed redmail and on one blue screen durring the instalation it said: Please specify your first virtual domain name It says it can not be the same as server name. I then entered because is my host name. WAS THIS WRONG SHOULD NAME BE ENTERED? worked and roundcube web mail reader poped up. —So my certificte is installed and working on somewhat

MY PROBLEM: I can’t get things working with mail clients Kmail or Thunderbiird. I go to set up a new mail account in Thunderbird and password It adds a Outgoing mail server for me but defalts to The one it adds is not, which I entered in the blue box above step while installin Iredmail.

This is the one Thunderbiird auto adds. Descrip: <not specified> Server Name: Port: 587 User Name: name@mydomainname…us Authentication methed: Normal password Connection Security STARTTLS

Here is what happens when I set this to my OUTGOING MAIL SERVER and try and send mail It wants to override how Thunderbird identifies my site when I try to send mail It say This Certificat belongs to a different site. It has a Get Certificate button but that dose nothing. It has a View Certificate when pushed it an when I do I get this: Could not verify this certificate because the issuer is not trusted.

Issued To Common Name (CN) Organization (O) Organizational Unit (OU) IT Serial Number xx:xx:xx…

Issued By Common Name (CN) Organization (O) Organizational Unit (OU) IT

Valiidity Issued On xx/xx/xxxx Expires on xx/xx/xxxx

Fingerprint SHA1 Fingerprint xx:xx:xx… MDS Fingerprint xx:xx:xx…

ANYONE KNOW WHATS GOING ON IS THIS ALL BECAUSE I ENTERED —instead of in the blue box when installing I red mail.

Apache is set up to see the cert, but did you edit the configuration files for postfix or dovecot? Make sure the paths to the certs are pointing to the ones you downloaded: <br> <br>/etc/postfix/ <br> <br><pre> <br> smtpd_tls_cert_file = /etc/apache2/ssl/ssl.crt <br> smtpd_tls_key_file = /etc/apache2/ssl/private.key <br> smtpd_tls_CAfile = /etc/apache2/ssl/ca.pem <br> smtpd_use_tls=yes <br></pre> <br> <br>/etc/dovecot/dovecot.conf: <br> <br><pre> <br> ssl = required <br> ssl_cert = </etc/apache2/ssl/ssl.crt <br> ssl_key = </etc/apache2/ssl/private.key <br> ssl_ca = </etc/apache2/ssl/ca.pem <br></pre> <br> <br>
