10.5: Set up OS X as an SSL-secured reverse proxy
Authored by: pecosbill on Mar 11, '08 11:52:36AM
If you do put a server admin email address, use a "public" one that you don't care about. It will be spammed, most likely. (It's a convenience for your users and not mandatory to my knowledge.)

Also, you may want to change the listen port for secure connections. I cannot recall where it's set. By putting a high port number, there's a slight reduction in risk. You would then connect via https://mydomain.tld:33333/ where 33333 is the port you specify. Max value is 65535. You probably will have to open the firewall for that port, too. Not sure how to do that with the new one in Leo.
