Default Sending Secure Email with a signed Godaddy cert.

I noticed today that my secure email was using the self signed cert. I did some poking around and saw that dovecot and posfix might be to blame.

I went into:
vi /etc/dovecot/dovecot.conf

and added:
ssl_cert_file = /var/www/server.example.com/ssl/server.example.com.crt
ssl_key_file = /var/www/server.example.com/ssl/server.example.com.key

and then:
vi /etc/postfix/main.cf

and added:
smtpd_tls_cert_file = /var/www/server.example.com/ssl/server.example.com.crt
smtpd_tls_key_file = /var/www/server.example.com/ssl/server.example.com.key

Everything seems to work now with ssl/tls with my Godaddy cert. Is this correct?

Thats correct. Here is a more detailed guide to setup all services to use a official ssl cert:

it does not matter if the cert is from godaddy or startssl for this setup.
