SSL certificate applied but not being used by SMTP server

I have a domain that I have an SSL cert for the subdomain mail.domain.com that has been applied to the C-panel

Padlock is green etc. in SSL status for mail.domain.com

When setting up secure SSL/TLS imap/smtp settings it shows a certificate error for the SMTP portion. When viewing the certificate it always shows the xxx.secureserver.net certificate.

Is there anyway to resolve this so that it uses the mail.domain.com certificate

thanks

Hello @mugen338 and thank you for being a part of the Community!

 

I am sorry you are experiencing this issue. I was able to locate the settings needed to configure mail clients with cPanel email and it recommends settings for SMTP and not SMTPS, set SSL or Secure Connection to none.

 

I hope this helps you with troubleshooting the issue. I would consider migrating your email to an email service with security, this way you are not using resources for your website to host your emails.
