STARTTLS support

The STARTTLS SMTP extension enables a secure, encrypted channel between your mail server and piler. To enable the STARTTLS feature add the –enable-starttls configure option, and recompile piler if necessary.

Create a PEM file

Create a PEM file containing both the private key and the certificate. If a self-signed certificate is good enough for you, then try the following:

openssl genrsa 2048 > /usr/local/etc/piler.pem
chmod 600 /usr/local/etc/piler.pem
openssl req -new -key /usr/local/etc/piler.pem > 1.csr
openssl x509 -in 1.csr -out 1.cert -days 3650 -req -signkey /usr/local/etc/piler.pem
cat 1.cert >> /usr/local/etc/piler.pem

Edit /usr/local/etc/piler.conf

tls_enable=1
pemfile=/usr/local/etc/piler.pem

Restart piler, and verify that it advertises the STARTTLS capability
