NAME

       mkesmtpdcert - 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 courier 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.
