MKPOP3DCERT(8)		    Double Precision, Inc.		MKPOP3DCERT(8)

NAME
       mkpop3dcert - create a test SSL certificate for POP3 over SSL

SYNOPSIS
       /usr/local/sbin/mkpop3dcert

DESCRIPTION
       POP3 over SSL requires a	valid, signed, X.509 certificate. The default
       location	for the	certificate file is /usr/local/share/courier-
       imap/pop3d.pem.	mkpop3dcert 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/pop3d.pem must be owned by	the root user
       and have	no group or world permissions. The mkpop3dcert command will
       enforce this. To	prevent	an unfortunate accident, mkpop3dcert will not
       work if /usr/local/share/courier-imap/pop3d.pem already exists.

       mkpop3dcert requires OpenSSL to be installed.

FILES
       /usr/local/share/courier-imap/pop3d.pem
	   X.509 certificate.

       /usr/local/etc/courier-imap/pop3d.cnf
	   Parameters used by OpenSSL to create	the X.509 certificate.
