(Whiteboard: [top-missing-domain][config][insecure])

The hosting of Network Solutions, the former .com registry. Now and since many years is a separate company from the registry.
Whiteboard: [top-missing-domain][config]
Component: ispdb → ISPDB Database Entries
Product: Mozilla Messaging → Webtools
The support resources I have found suggest all mail is handled so that you'd have a CNAME from mail.example.com to mail.example.com.netsolmail.net.  This is documented at http://www.networksolutions.com/support/setup-your-nsmail-to-work-with-non-nswebaddress/.  Mail client setup is then based on that, see http://www.networksolutions.com/support/pop-imap-settings/, but sketchily suggests not using SSL.

I used the scans.io sonar.fdns database to locate an MX mapping along these lines.  The resulting "mail.example.com.netsolmail.net" equivalent resulted in an "A" entry for 205.178.146.50 that reversed to "mail.networksolutionsemail.com" that listens on port 993.  Unfortunately, that host advertises certificates only valid for *.hostingplatform.com.  mailpod.hostingplatform.com also seems to exist within the same class C address space, but the certificate is still no good because only a bare certificate is provided without a valid chain.  (https://sslanalyzer.comodoca.com/?url=mailpod.hostingplatform.com%3A993 nicely confirms that Mozilla and Microsoft won't like it.)

The cert expires on Oct 19, 2015, so it's possible that someone will fix things around then.  For that reason, I'm going to leave this open for now, but in practice there is no way to create a valid configuration because of the certificate issue.
