Removing the Domain Name for Certificate Validation

This tutorial explains how to configure an IMAP, POP or SMTP email account to remove the domain name when connecting to a server using secure TLS or SSL sockets.


  1. Create an instance of the CEmailAccounts class.

  2. Create an instance of the CImIAPPreferences class to be used by the email service.

  3. Create an instance of the CIm<protocol>Settings class.

    Where, <protocol> is Imap4, Pop3, or Smtp.

  4. Populate the CImIAPPreferences class and the CIm<protocol>Settings class from central repository (CenRep) using CEmailAccounts ::Load<protocol>IapSettingsL function.

  5. Use the CIm<protocol>Settings:: SetTlsSslDomainL() function to pass KNullDesC8 to clear the existing domain name.

  6. Store the updated settings classes to CenRep using the CEmailAccounts ::Save<protocol>IapSettingsL function.

Note: All instances of <protocol> in the preceding steps are either

Imap4, Pop3, or Smtp.
