mailserver uses old certs - with workaround

  • even so, that the box hast renewed the certs a month ago, the mailserver is still using the old, expired ones.
    Meanwhile the Server had been restarted a couple of times, as well as restarting the mail-container didn't help.

    cloudron version v3.5.4

    copy the certs to the mailserver-volume and restart dovecot

    install -g yellowtent -o yellowtent -m 644 my.${DOMAIN}.cert /home/yellowtent/platformdata/addons/mail/tls_cert.pem
    docker exec mail supervisorctl restart dovecot

    @chymian Thanks for the workaround! There was indeed a bug in the older versions (pre-3.5.4) that caused this problem. This is fixed in 3.5.4, so you don't have to repeat the workaround again for the next cert renewal.

    Another option is to simply Disable mail and then Enable mail for the domain. This will effectively end up copying the certs.
