Hi All

Firstly thank you to the developers and supporters of this product.

I am completly new to iRedMail and linux and I have been banging away at this problem for 12 hours and admit defeat.

I have iredmail installed and everything seems to work. 
Web mail works for inbound and outbound. 
port 25 143 443 and 587 are forwarded through my firewall to the mail server
The server host name is mail.mydomain.com
I have a LE cert installed and it works in Nginx (no errors on webmail page) and correct cert visible
I have added the cert to Postfix and Dovecot by using the symlink method described here: https://docs.iredmail.org/letsencrypt.html
The cert is issued to mail.mydomain.com

However when I try to set up a Thunderbird email client (user=myname@mydomain.com) I get an error (see attached) about adding a security exception for location "domain.com" Even though the cert is correctly issued to MAIL.domain.com.  The attached shows a screen shot of the error with the certificate in question in the background.

The second attachment shows the setting I am using on the client.

Any suggestions as to how to resolve this would be appreciated as I am stumped.

Re: LE cert installed but thunderbird give error

- Is dovecot configured to use correct ssl cert/key files?
- Does dovecot have permission to access ssl cert/key files?
- Any error in Dovecot log files under /var/log/dovecot/?


Buy me a cup of coffee ($5) to support iRedMail:

Re: LE cert installed but thunderbird give error

It seems this is a bug in Thunderbird 91 as i do not get this error when using an older version of Thunderbird or Outlook or Windows mail.  I have registered it as a bug with Mozilla.
