I get to my webmail using https and cpanel port 2096. A dialog tells me the certificate authority is not trusted and asks if it's okay to proceed. I say yes. I am then able to connect to my webmail but I do not get a "secure" indication from the browser. The URL still says https. Is the connection encrypted? Thanks.

yes, the connection is still encrypted. It's just that the server side's identification has not be validated. This is common for internal projects, but the security if still there. If there are external elements that are being pulled using http://, then those specific elements are not being encrypted.
