NAME

       makeesmtpdcert - Create a secure SMTP test certificate

SYNOPSIS

       /usr/sbin/mkesmtpdcert

DESCRIPTION

       Secure  ESMTP requires a valid, signed, X.509 certificate.  The default
       location for the certificate file is /usr/lib/courier/esmtpd.pem.   The
       mkesmtpdcert  generates  a  self-signed  X.509  certificate, mainly for
       testing. For production use the X.509 certificate must be signed  by  a
       recognized  certificate  authority, in order for mail clients to accept
       the certificate.

       /usr/lib/courier/esmtpd.pem must be owned by the daemon user  and  have
       no  group  or world permissions.  The mkesmtpdcert command will enforce
       this.  To prevent an unfortunate accident, mkesmtpdcert will  not  work
       if /usr/lib/courier/esmtpd.pem already exists.

       mkesmtpdcert requires OpenSSL to be installed.
