Allow setting a wildcart hostname in dovecot

In Progress

Hello,


At the moment when a customer want's to setup e-mail with SSL he has to use the server hostname.


If a company of 100 employees setup their computers, iphones and laptops, it can quickly become a nightmare to move them to another serevr.


If we had a wildcard SSL cert we could supply them with an URL like :


mail.USERNAME.host.name.tld


This would allow us to easily move them to a new server without reconfiguring all of their software.


Dovecot says it supports wildcart hostnames *.name.tld so if cPanel allowed us to set this, it could make moving an account much easier…

So you would like SNI support for Dovecot?

  1. It's also possible to use wildcards (eg. *.domain.com) in the host name. They should work with most clients.

I suppose it is some sort of SNI, but just have a single IP for *.domain.com, not necssaraily have multiple domains sharing the same IP.
