Can I use my own SSL certificate for email security?

Yes, it is possible to use your own SSL certificate for email security with OnePoundEmail's email hosting service. To use your own SSL certificate, you will need to obtain an SSL certificate from a trusted third-party provider and install it on your domain's server. Here are the steps to follow:

  1. Purchase an SSL certificate from a trusted third-party provider.
  2. Generate a CSR (Certificate Signing Request) for your domain's server.
  3. Provide the CSR to the SSL certificate provider and follow their instructions to obtain the certificate.
  4. Install the SSL certificate on your domain's server. You can either do this yourself if you are familiar with server administration, or you can contact OnePoundEmail's support team for assistance.
  5. Once the SSL certificate is installed, update your email client settings to use SSL/TLS for secure connections.

It is important to note that if you choose to use your own SSL certificate, you will be responsible for managing and renewing it on your own. OnePoundEmail's support team can provide guidance and assistance with the installation process, but ongoing management of the SSL certificate will be your responsibility.
