Default RE: Cannot telnet...

All systems go!

In the event that you purchase and install a SSL certificate after the initial server build where you had a self-signed one:

1. Using openssl you must create a certificate and key in the PEM format for dovecot.

2. cp cert servername.pem file to /etc/pki/dovecot/servername.pem

3. cp key servername.pem file to /etc/pki/dovecot/private/servername.pem

4. Restart dovecot /etc/init.d/dovecot restart

5. Test from external m/c using telnet yourhost.com 110

6. Test from your MUA on external m/c

If your username / passoword are correct you should be in.

Thanks topdog for your help
