Am in desperate need of some help with getting an SSL certificate to work properly with KMS 6.6

I have got a 14 day trial certificate from VeriSign; this was generated using Kerio's guidelines of generating the request from the admin console and entering that into VeriSign’s website.
I got the .crt file from VeriSign; this was then copied into C:\Program Files\Kerio\Mailserver\sslcert on the server and renamed to the same name as the .csr and .key files

In the admin console I then set this as the Active certificate and re-started the mail server. However every time I browse to I am still getting a certificate error

VeriSign’s support say "VeriSign trial certificate are chained which means the trial intermediate certificate has to be installed on your server" and Kerio support say that "Kerio MailServer does not support server-side intermediate certificates"

Can anyone offer any help with this? Or an alternative certificate provider that they have used which works simply to allow SSL access to my mail server.

Many thanks in advance

Either get a signed root certificate at $$$ or you will need to install the intermediate certificate

Kerio MailServer allows authentication by so called “intermediate” certificate. To make authentication by these certificates work, it is necessary to add the certificates to Kerio MailServer by using any of the following methods:

Add the “intermediate” certificate file to the /sslca directory and copy the server's certificate with the private key to the /sslcert directory. Both directories can be found in the directory where Kerio MailServer is installed.

Unfortunately, if you are wanting to use the over the air ActiveSync feature with Windows Mobile devices, the WM5 devices don’t accept SSL certs that are signed by intermediate certs. You may have to import your intermediate certs using this technique. You might want to avoid the headache and pay more for a SSL certificate that is signed by a root certificate.

Have a read of this for some help
