I'm getting a security alert that the webmail security certificate has expired. Do yo have any plans to update this?

How do I setup my own clients to get to the email. This appears to be a potential security risk according to my field of study in Information Technology Security.

Nope, just checked - the certificate hasn't expired. It's set to expire on 22 February 2021.

Also, SSL is just an added layer of protection. Yes, it's more secure than not having HTTPS... But just a few short years ago, almost *everything* online went via a standard unsecured HTTP connection. If you're on a secure network, you'll be more than fine accessing your email.

Thank You. I thought it might be something on my system being overly cautions. Thought I would ask anyway.

Dale,

I just tried mine again and I got this:

I already submitted a sitesupport ticket.
I went in the back office to get to my email for my website.

That's the same error I'm getting, but only when navigating to the webmail. Also when I try to set it up on Outlook, it is showing as insecure ports. Is there some way to ensure these connections are encrypted? I might submit a support ticket too.

I noticed you are talking about HTTPS in your reply. Email is something else and uses a different type of protocol. Typically, it is SMTP or an encrypted form such as S/MIME. I'm not seeing that in the information though. It looks like it might just be using port 25 in an unencrypted state.

Email uses a different port, yes, but you mentioned webmail. Webmail is accessible via port 80, therefore secured via https.

I can see that the server's certificate expired on November 25, 2020, so that'll be what's throwing the warning.

Thank you for clearing that up. I appreciate it.
