I'm trying to install a SSL Certificate on a mailserver under 10.6 server. I dont know what to do by intermediate certificate and choosing type on certificate assistant. Is there any good tutorial that I can follow?

    This is from Go-Daddy.com's support site, but I think it's relevant still.  It worked for me when installing their certificate.

    To Install the Intermediate Chain

    1. Copy the certificate files to your server.
    2. Launch the Keychain Access application (/Applications/Utilities/Keychain Access).
    3. If the button at the lower left of the Keychain Access window is labeled "Show Keychains" then click the button to show the Keychain list.
    4. Select the System keychain.
    5. Click the padlock icon at the top left to unlock the System keychain. Authenticate as a user with administrative privileges, if prompted.
    6. Select File->Import. Navigate to and select the gd_intermediate.crt that you copied to your server.
    7. Verify that the "Go Daddy Secure Certification Authority" appears in the list.
    8. Close the Keychain Access application.

    To Install Your Certificate

    1. Launch the Server Admin tool and connect to the server where you want to install the certificate.
    2. In the Servers pane, select the server on which you want to install the SSL certificate.
    3. Select Certificates from the toolbar at the top of the right pane.
    4. Select the item representing the certificate you have requested. Click the "Gear" button and then select Add Signed or Renewed Certificate from Certificate Authority....
    5. Drag the file containing your server certificate to the blue certificate icon that displays after the previous step.

    The first part is ok (Intermediate CA), but now on installing the certificate I get the following error:

     

    The file "CertificateSigningRequest.crt" does not appear to contain any identifiable keys or certificates.
