July 2022 SSL Issues


Just to confirm for everyone experiencing this, there does seem to be an ongoing issue with the SSL cert used by the POP3 and SMTP services on this server. Specifically:

  • There is a proper exmsft.com SSL certificate installed. (This web site is using it.)
  • It’s supposed to automatically be used for the POP3 and SMTP services.
  • It’s not.
  • If I explicitly configure those services to use the correct certificate, that configuration is overridden in the middle of the night.
  • Frustration ensues.

I’m working with the hosting service to answer the question: WTF?

In the meantime you have a couple of options, I believe:

  • Use non-SSL connections.
  • Accept/save the non-standard certificates from inmotionhosting.com.

As a reminder, here’s the configuration page.

“We apologize for the inconvenience.” Working on it.
