The Mac OS X 10.4.11 Server running on Xserve, everything is find, for the webmail, there is an issue how to enable https instead of http e.g. , but normal web page keep running on port 80.


There is some settings for us to enable SSL for "Web" items on Server Admin, but if we enabled it, the port for the home page becomes 443 instead of 80, what we need to setup as belows:


General home page






Any help would highly appreciated.

    Hi Patrick,


    I know not about Server, but see if this is of any use,,,


    The receiving email ports are:


    IMAP is port 143

    IMAP-SSL is port 993

    POP is port 110

    POP-SSL is port 995


    SMTP and SMTP-SSL is on ports 25, 587 and 465. Port 587 has to be SSL, and port 465 is enforced TLS-wrapped and is generally used by Outlook users.


    No idea really, but I don't think port 80 could ever be SSL, though it could be https of course.
