How to Configure SSL Settings


Updated: May 4, 2021


The following page will show you how to configure SSL-related settings in Axigen.


Axigen supports SSL connections for all its TCP based modules (SMTP, POP3, IMAP, WebMail). Here's how to use an SSL encrypted connection through a secure (SSL) socket:

Clients can connect on secure ports for each service. Default protocol secure ports are:

  • IMAPS: 993
  • POP3S: 995
  • SMTPS: 465
  • HTTPS: 443

In order to create a secure socket in Axigen, you must create a listener on the corresponding port for the specific service you want to secure. Login into WebAdmin, and go to the desired service's context (WebAdmin → Services → specific service). Press the Add listener button and make the following settings:

  • Type the IP of the network interface on which you want the listener to be bound and the corresponding port, according to the list above
  • Press the Quick Add button
  • Click Edit for this newly created listener
  • Switch to the SSL Settings tab
  • Check the Enable SSL for this listener option
  • Set the Path to certificate file to point to the default certificate created during the Axigen installation.

    Depending on the operating system, the appropriate values are:
    • for Linux: /var/opt/axigen/axigen_cert.pem
    • for Windows: C:\Program Files\Axigen Mail Server\axigen_cert.pem
  • Press the Save Configuration button
