    Is there somewhere to report bugs or major annoyances to? This one has been getting up my nose for ages.

    When you choose any server from Expand you get a certificate warning becuase expand insists on referencing server by ip address, rather than host names.

    The biggest pain in the *** is when a customer is hosted on a centralised mail server. They click the Remote Mail button and get the same warning. A lot of customers start saying things "OMG your servers are insecure and can be haxx0red".

    The cmail server actually worked properly when it was first released but it got changed somewhere along the way to using an IP number instead of hostname.

    We pay good money for our Thawte SSL certificates to stop these stupid warnings appear on browsers, this is wasted money becuase of the ridiculous way Expand/Plesk references servers.
