MKESMTPDCERT(8)		    Double Precision, Inc.	       MKESMTPDCERT(8)

NAME
       mkesmtpdcert - Create a secure SMTP test	certificate

SYNOPSIS
       /usr/local/sbin/mkesmtpdcert

DESCRIPTION
       Secure ESMTP requires a valid, signed, X.509 certificate. The default
       location	for the	certificate file is
       /usr/local/share/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/local/share/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/local/share/courier/esmtpd.pem already exists.

       mkesmtpdcert requires OpenSSL to	be installed.
