Valid SSL trial version will send your mail and save that as a text file

Make sure you have 5 dashes to either side of the BEGIN CERTIFICATE and END CERTIFICATE and that no white space, extra line breaks or additional characters have been inadvertently added.

Note: Any of the following certificate file extension format is recognize by Microsoft IIS server - .txt, .cer & .p7b. In order to make sure that your certificate will install in any format we recommend using the .txt extension.
