Ubuntu: How to setup TLS on postfix and dovecot

RE: Ubuntu: How to setup TLS on postfix and dovecot
The tutorial here didn't work for me as it forces you to create a PEM passphrase, which postfix doesn't support.

The response here by americanninja worked fine for me. Sentora TLS

The link provided takes you here: PostFix TLS

this eliminated the generation of a CA cert and Key.

Confused
Nothing we can do, you are using a self-signed certificate. Get a free certificate using Let's Encrypt Big Grin

You can use parts of this tutorial to get a certificate: http://forums.sentora.org/showthread.php?tid=2535

Just skip the parts for custom vhost entries and port forwarding, etc. Just make sure you have openSSL, mod_ssl and let's encrypt installed (Info in the tutorial) then update your email settings to use the new let's encrypt certificate Wink

TLS works nicely after following this guide, unfortunately the forwarding stopped working.
Any idea why?

Hi, have you found a solution to this? I have the same problem. Followed step-by-step from step3. I used letsencrypt for certificates. I'm no linux expert but what I found is dovecot is no longer running, status I'm getting is "dovecot stop/waiting" when checking the status (service dovecot status).

FYI, I created a certificate for "mydomain.com" + "mail.mydomain.com" + "panel.mydomain.com"... "mydomain.com" & "panel.mydomain.com" is working fine with ssl. Might this be the problem? Should I create a separate certificate for "mail.mydomain.com?

I make separate certificates for each domain. Especially mail.domain.com because it is a different way of verifying that domain since it is not technically 'web readable'.

Thanks. I'll try this and get back with feedback.

Changed /etc/dovecot/dovecot.conf line: "ssl = no to ssl = yes" to "ssl=required" and all green ticks on https://www.checktls.com
