More Notes about Email Client ConfigurationsIf you have an installed non-wildcard SSL certificate which matches your hostname, the name of your server will match your hostname. For example, if your hostname is www.example.com and your SSL certificate matches your hostname, your server would be named www.example.com.
If your SSL certificate is a wildcard SSL, the name of your server will also match any subdomains which correspond to the hostname's domain. For example, an SSL certificate for *.example.com would be valid for my.example.com and foo.example.com.
If you do not have an SSL certificate installed, the server will use the mail subdomain of your domain. For example, mail.example.com. Also, the server will be named mail.example.com if your certificate does not match your hostname.
