Let's Encrypt is a certificate authority that provides free certificates for Transport Layer Security (TLS) encryption via an automated process.
This article applies to MDaemon versions 18.0 and above.
MDaemon's Let's Encrypt menu is designed to eliminate the current complex process of manual creation, validation, signing, installation, and renewal of certificates for secure websites. Click here for more information on Let's Encrypt and the services provided.
