SMTP error due to incorrect domain name on certificate



I purchased a domain name (hosting with a basic SSL certificate. I then configured cPanel emails and configured the Thunderbird email client. All went well.


When I try and send email I get a string of errors:

1. The message could not be sent via the outgoing server (SMTP) for an unknown reason

2. There is another popup that says; the site attempts to identify itself with invalid information

3. If I view the certificate here it says the site belongs to *

4. I have the option to get certificate - but this fails

5. I have the option to 'confirm security exception' but I don't want to do this


If I use the SSL Security Checker my SSL certificate is into correct name.

Does the SMTP use a different certificate?

How can I make this cert valid for my domain name?
