Yes, you can use the same certificate however a certificate with a CN of "yourdomain.com" and an Alternative Name of "www.mydomain.com" will not work on a mail droplet that has its hostname set to "mail.mydomain.com".

Since StartSSL is free, it wouldn't hurt to get a separate certificate for the mail server.
