This is not a question -- just documenting something that's important to know about when installing a wildcard certificate as it took me about 20 min to figure out what was going on.

If you are moving from individual SSL certs like mail.company.com and www.company.com to *.company.com -- and your Kerio server has been around for a while that the old mail.company.com certs are installed (but are expired), you'll need to remove the old certs. If you don't do that when you install the *.company.com cert, you'll find that it defaults to the expired, but more specific SSL certs, and not the active/default wildcard cert.

Bottom line: If changing "formats" -- clean things up, or it may confuse things.

Thanks Neil, yes you're right. Wildcard certs are low in the order of selection. Our knowledge base describes the logic for how Kerio Connect chooses certificates:

Brian: I'm glad you added that to this thread -- as despite searching for issue, that part of the KB article wasn't an obvious read -- and by adding it here, hopefully someone looking to do this in the future, will see it.

If I can suggest adding a "Wildcard SSL Certificates" section to that page -- and note the prioritization, that would be helpful.
