Dovecot IMAP/POP3


Preparing for Installation

To install your SecureTrust™ Digital Server certificate on Dovecot, you need either the .zip file that you received in your email from SecureTrust or you can download it within the SecureTrust Control Center. The .PEM file in the .zip file contains the "PEM Concatenated" certificate and the intermediate certificate.

Now, take the PEM concatenated certificate along with your private key and place them into a secure directory.

Install your SecureTrust Digital Server certificate

Open the Dovecot configuration file and set the following three options. If they're already set, adjust their values to match the following:

ssl_cert_file = /path/securetrustcert.pem <- PEM certificate
ssl_key_file = /path/private.key 
ssl_disable = no <- enables SSL

Completing the installation

To finish the installation, simply restart Dovecot. As soon as Dovecot has restarted, your certificate should be active.
