Re: wildcard SSL on other host domain
Question asked by Hemen Shah - October 26, 2016 at 3:22 AM

Hi,
 
Trying to force all hosts to use primary incoming and outgoing host (*.xyz.com) which is on SSL, but when trying to test name@abc.com on checktls.com getting below error rather flagging, so if i want  my ssl configured domain to be used by all domains hosted for secure mailing then is below flagging accepted or will create issue.
 
[000.500]   Cert VALIDATED: ok
[000.500]   Cert Hostname DOES NOT VERIFY (mail.abc.com != *.xyz.com)
[000.500]   (see RFC-2818 section 3.1 paragraph 4 for info on wildcard ("*") matching)
[000.500]   So email is encrypted but the host is not verified
 
Thanks

Hemen,
 
If you're configuring the e-mail clients with say secure.xyz.com as as the mail server address, this will not cause any errors.
 
It looks like Check TLS returned a warning since it had connected against mail.abc.com from what I can tell, this didn't line up with the certificate passed along in the handshake for *.xyz.com. 
 
If you setup Outlook with an account from ABC.com and point the mail server to secure.xyz.com with TLS\SSL are any errors encountered ?
