When the Secure Administration is configured for a CA certificate, it is applied to web administration traffic only.  The device continues to use a self-signed certificate for message exchange using TLS.    When a CA certificate is activated, it should be used in all contexts.

 

If a particular communication partner requires SMTP over TLS with a verifiable certificate, the Barracuda becomes unusable because of this oversight.   Based on what I am reading in other forums, this is definitely occurring.
