The IIS binding and the SmarterMail bindings are two completely different things.
Just because IIS is working does not mean that SmarterMail will work.
You must ADD the certs - both the certificate issued to you for the domain, and ALL TWO or THREE supporting certificates (they are not sent by the certificate issuer, you must go to their site, download, and ADD them into the CERTIFICATE REPOSITORY in the server operating system).
You MUST also add the certificate you use for IIS to the CERTIFICATE REPOSITORY and then properly EXPORT the PFX certificate for SmarterMail, placing it somewhere in the SmarterMail PROGRAM directory.
Here are the instructions for generating the PFX cert:
and here are my version of the same instructions:
Don't forget to CHANGE THE PERMISSIONS on the CER file so that everyone can read it!
Once you've done that, you'll need to BIND the PFX certificate to EACH of the SmarterMail SSL and TLS reports, and click on the VERIFY BUTTON, to make certain you've properly exported the certificate, SmarterMail can see it, and the port binding is good.
Our exported PFX certificate is named: securemail.chicagonettech.com.cer,
and the path in which the certificate is located is:
D:\Program Files (x86)\SmarterTools\SmarterMail\securemail.chicagonettech.com.cer
Here's our list of ports, and how they are bound:
Then you must also BIND the PORTS to the IP ADDRESS(ES) used by the FQDN of your SmarterMail server:
Then you must MAP the FQDN of your SmarterMail SERVER to the IP ADDRESS which is used to SEND all of your e-mail:
And you must have your OUTBOUND SMTP properly configured to either use the same IP ADDRESS as the IP ADDRESS you mapped to the FQDN of your SmarterMail server above:
If you have multiple hosted domains, then you can map them to separate IP addresses, but you must also make certain to create additional HOSTNAME and PORT to IP ADDRESS mappings for EACH DIFFERENT IP ADDRESS you use.
