    Default Which SSL Cert?

    I'm looking to purchase a SSL cert from Verisign. They have two options, Secure Site and Secure Site Pro.

    The Secure Site Pro has more options, but is it needed to secure a ZCS server?

    Also, should I look into other options beside Verisign?

    Thank you,

    David

    We use the quick ssl certs cost around $20 bucks (Godaddy or eNom). Have had zero issues with it and zimbra. Install howto is on the wiki.

    Thank you for the info. What are the differences between this and the Verisign certs? Is Verisign worth the big bucks?

    personally I don't think so unless you are selling products. The quick certs just validate your company from your whois data. I think that's good enough for how it's used with a mail server.

    Thanks for the advice.

    When is it necessary to get a full blown Verisign (or other) cert? They seem to be very pricey, and I'm wondering if it's required.

    A high dollar cert is not required. High dollar or cheap they all make the warning message go away so why not just go cheap? If you got tons of money get the high dollar one but your users will not know the difference between the quick cert or the high dollar.
