Pop3-ssl-cert-renew

If your tired of having to click OK to accept certificate from LOCALHOST on your thunderbird? Use this guide to renew your ssl certificate.

This articles describes the renewal of SSL certificates for courier pop3 and imap server. This is nescessary e.g. when the certificates are expired or contain the wrong hostname.

First delete the exsiting certificates:

   rm -f /etc/courier/imapd.pem
   rm -f /etc/courier/pop3d.pem

Then edit the template that contains the details for the certificates so that the hostname in the certificate matches the hostname of your server and that the email address matches your postmaster email address:

   vi /etc/courier/imapd.cnf
   vi /etc/courier/pop3d.cnf

and create the new certificates:

   mkimapdcert
   mkpop3dcert

Courier pop3 and imap have to be restarted so they pick up the new certificates:

   /etc/init.d/courier-imap-ssl restart
   /etc/init.d/courier-pop-ssl restart
