    How about how to configure it for SSL/TLS or STARTTLS in a way that doesn’t give a certificate warning?

    Hi Mike,

    You will have to use the server name instead of mail.yourdomain.com. If you’re having issues setting this up, simply call us at 1-877-326-7483, use live chat or submit a support ticket to get assistance or visit our contact page.
