clarification with thunderbird setings
« on: September 23, 2021, 02:34:20 PM »
I don't know.  Google is sending everything to spam on different severs.  I am using tbird client.  When I set up an account I normally use mail.mydomain.com for smtp and imap.  But when I do that, tbird throws an error saying certificates dont match.   When I view the certificate from letsencrypt it says server.mydomain.com and not mail.mydomain.com

Can someone help me stratighten this mess out.?

Now I just tried sending from a different domain and the LE cert says common name is www.mydomain.com

Thanks.

Unable to communicate securely with peer: requested domain name does not match the serverís certificate.

Just got that also after the update today to 0.9.8.1084

Rebuild your Postfix configuration and that should go away.

Under your SSL Certificates, make you you have the Mail service added.

Then in your DNS:
Create MX record: mail MX 0 mail.domain.com
Then create an A record for mail 1.2.3.4

SMTP should use StartTLS, while incoming should use SSL/TLS

We currently use Thunderbird 91.1.1
