What is the purpose of the Integration feature storing the server's SSL certificate? If it's a valid certificate, it should never need to be stored.

Won't a new certificate, when the existing one expires, create a certificate error upon renewal?

Many of customers are using self-signed SSL certificates which are not trusted to the client by their nature.

This is bad practice. With this behavior, you are rewarding the people who do it wrong, and punishing the people who do it correctly.

If the mail admin is not going to purchase a valid certificate, you make those that do it correctly have to re-visit each machine every time the cert renews.

I wouldn't go as far as saying it's a bad practice. But it is an annoying one, depending on the users. There are free SSL certificates now, a quick search will find lots of sites for this, which would be a better choice. Overall, Kerio is awesome on allowing choice, and this is just a simple one for their clients.

If we are all for choice, how about one that allows NOT installing a certificate that will break in a year or two? It's going to cause MASS confusion when the certificate gets renewed.
