Generally an unmoderated forum for discussion of pretty much any topic. The focus however, is usually politics.

I've been spending much of this week learning how to auto-update my mail server with Let's Encrypt certificates.

I have it more or less working, but I'm nowhere near ready to offer advice.

Exactly what I'm using as a matter of fact -- I just used certbot to renew and seemed to work successfully -- the last time it expired it screwed up horribly and I had to fix all kinds of sym links to point to the right certs.

You can have it run as a cron job (Windows scheduled task for you?) and automatically renew when it expires, but I hate giving up that control especially when I don't fully trust it yet.
