Installing your SSL Certificate / Web Server Certificate
/ Secure Server Certificate from RapidSSL.com
Firstly when your issuance email arrives you will have
two certificates in the email - your server certificate and a chained
Copy the chained certificate into a text editor such as
notepad and save as chain.crt.
Copy your web server certificate into a text editor such as notepad and
save as yourdomain.crt.
1. Locate and open the Postfix config file main.cf.
2. Save yourdomain.crt to the same directory as the
yourdomain.key file which would have been created when you originally
created your CSR. If you are importing an existing certificate, ensure
you also import the yourdomain.key file.
3. Save the chain.crt to the same directory as
yourdomain.crt and yourdomain.crt.
4. In the the Postfix TLS settings section ensure the
following directives and file locations are present. You will need to
add them if they are not present or if they are different:
smtpd_tls_cert_file = /some/path/yourdomain.crt
smtpd_tls_key_file = /some/path/yourdomain.key
smtpd_tls_CAfile = /some/path/chain.crt
The following settings may be different per server,
however ensure that your setup is similar to the below examples:
smtpd_use_tls = yes
smtpd_tls_auth_only = yes
smtpd_tls_session_cache_timeout = 3600s
