Can I / should I use the same certificate for both iredmail and apache? I already got one for apache from StartSLL but want to add a mail server to my same domain name.

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

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