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 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.
