Welcome back to the daily emailing setup on Debian… :»
The default private key for the courier IMAP server is for localhost, whiwh will issue warnings in the mail client. To generate a new (self signed) private key, you need to do this:
- rm /etc/courier/imapd.pem (or back it up)
- edir /etc/courier/imap.cnf and at least put the right value into CN=
- mkimapdcert which will generate a new key, but in the wrong place!
- mv /usr/lib/courier/imapd.pem /etc/courier/
- chown root imapd.pem
I wonder when this is gonna end…
