Simple suggestion for Postfix Mail Server Manager:

The Postfix Mail Server Manager lists the "Current Settings in Postfix" like this:

mydomain =
myhostname =

But the text boxes below ("Hostname:" and "Domain:") are only pre-populated with my server hostname (eg, "host").

My suggestion:
Please pre-fill the "Hostname:" and "Domain:" text boxes with the values listed in the "Current Settings in Postfix" (mydomain =     myhostname = so that when I click the "Rebuild Mail Server" button, I don't lose my already-established Postfix settings.

I was banging my head on my keyboard for about a week before I realized what I did when I clicked on "Rebuild Mail Server" and lost my Postfix settings.

Thanks for your help.


I'm still having issues... I fixed the dovecot.conf file as you said and now the dovecot service starts up just fine.  I also ran an SSL check ( and verified my SSL chain is not broken.

However, now when I try to access email using any client (such as Microsoft Outlook) I receive an error that says
"We couldn't connect to the ongoing (SMTP) server using the specified encryption method.  Please check the outgoing (SMTP) server encryption method and try again."

What other dovecot (or postfix) configuration options am I missing?

Keep in mind my email servers were running perfectly until I installed went to the CWP Panel -> Email -> MailServer Manager, checkmarked the three boxes: "AntiSpam/AntiVirus (recommended)", "rDNS Check (recommended)", and "Install DKIM & SPF (recommended)", then clicked the "Rebuild Mail Server" button.  Whatever the configuration was prior to this worked great (could send/receive email without issue).  Now... I'm just plain frustrated.

I appreciate your help.

You can generate new certificates in CWP under Security ssl generator and then just change /etc/dovecot/dovecot.conf under SSL to the new file names

Thank you!  Your solution worked perfectly!
