NAME
       mkimapdcert - create a test SSL certificate for IMAP over SSL

SYNOPSIS
       /usr/local/sbin/mkimapdcert

DESCRIPTION
       IMAP over SSL requires a	valid, signed, X.509 certificate. The default
       location	for the	certificate file is /usr/local/share/courier-
       imap/imapd.pem.	mkimapdcert 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-imap/imapd.pem must be owned by	the root user
       and have	no group or world permissions. The mkimapdcert command will
       enforce this. To	prevent	an unfortunate accident, mkimapdcert will not
       work if /usr/local/share/courier-imap/imapd.pem already exists.

       mkimapdcert requires OpenSSL to be installed.

FILES
       /usr/local/share/courier-imap/imapd.pem
	   X.509 certificate.

       /usr/local/etc/courier-imap/imapd.cnf
	   Parameters used by OpenSSL to create	the X.509 certificate.
