Create a new ssl certificate for imapd (imapd.pem) on debian

It has been a year of using imaps and the certificate expired.

On the imap server, do this:


# cd /etc/ssl/certs/
# openssl req -new -x509 -nodes -out imapd.pem -keyout imapd.pem -days 365b>
Generating a 1024 bit RSA private key
..........++++++
.....................................++++++
writing new private key to 'imapd.pem'

You are about to be asked to enter information that will be incorporated
into your certificate request.
What you are about to enter is what is called a Distinguished Name or a DN.
There are quite a few fields but you can leave some blank
For some fields there will be a default value,
If you enter '.', the field will be left blank.
