  • IIS 6 SMTP Certificates with Let'sEncrypt

    Feb 21, 2020 12:19 PM|jhable|LINK

    I have set up IIS 6 SMTP server and it is working with TLS using a Let'sEncrypt certificate.

    The problem I have is that Let'sEncrypt is renewing the certificate automatically in the Web Hosting certificate store.

    In order to get SMTP to see the certificate I had to copy it to the Personal certificate store but I don't want to have to do this every 90 days.

    So I want to know the best way to get this sorted.

    I seem to have a few options but don't know how to achieve them:

    Get IIS to check the Web Hosting store instead of Personal store. Is the a registry setting?


    Get wacs (Let'sEncrypt) to store just that certificate in Personal store as I have many websites so web hosting is best place (Don't see how I can do this for 1 site)


    Automate a task to copy the certificate once renewed to the Personal store

    Any ideas would be appreciated. Thanks

    Hi, this has nothing to do with Exchange as I am not using Exchange. No specific error occurs and there are not menu options. Are you sure you have replied to the correct link?
