Third Party Wildcard SSL certificate cannot validate Email

So my domain is secured by third party wildcard SSL certificate & my domains are secured which also includes


When I try to connect the email account using some application SSL authentication fails & certificate is not considered valid because the Certificate Subject and the hostname doesn't match.


So to understand this in a better way I did a telnet to my server as follows


telnet 25 & the response was


Connected to
Escape character is '^]'. ESMTP Exim 4.92 #2 Sat, 02 May 2020 07:39:17 -0700
220-We do not authorize the use of this system to transport unsolicited,
220 and/or bulk e-mail.


So there is another go daddy's server which is giving the response and the domain for the same is '' whose IP Address is


So it's pretty obvious that the SSL validation fails.


I had called GoDaddy's support and they came up with nothing apart from the fact that I am using shared hosting. So does it mean that every shared hosting user can never get his email account validated via SSL? Also, what is this server? A relay server? Can't we set up our own Sendmail/Postfix etc? I was wondering what could be the fix?


Hello @thevirajshelke and thank you for being a part of the Community!


I do apologize for the delayed response. I utilized GoDaddy's SSL Checker and entered your domain, the results show your SSL is installed correctly. Do you mind sharing how you were able to troubleshoot this issue, so that other end users who may experience this in the future can troubleshoot?


Again I do apologize for the delayed response and I hope you have a wonderful weekend 😁.
