NAME

       mkpop3dcert - create a test SSL certificate for POP3 over SSL

SYNOPSIS

       /usr/sbin/mkpop3dcert

DESCRIPTION

       POP3 over SSL requires a valid, signed, X.509 certificate.  The default
       location  for  the  certificate  file  is   /usr/lib/courier/pop3d.pem.
       mkpop3dcert  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/pop3d.pem must be owned by the daemon user and have no
       group or world permissions.  The mkpop3dcert command will enforce this.
       To prevent an  unfortunate  accident,  mkpop3dcert  will  not  work  if
       /usr/lib/courier/pop3d.pem already exists.

       mkpop3dcert requires OpenSSL to be installed.

FILES

       /usr/lib/courier/pop3d.pem
