I’m using acmetool 0.67 as the client, and I see it is still listed in https://letsencrypt.org/docs/client-options/
Today I received the following email:
Action is strongly recommended to prevent problems with your Let’s Encrypt
A client you have used to access the Let’s Encrypt API in the past 60 days has
identified itself (its “user agent”) as “Go-http-client”. This is a generic
name for the underlying library that the client uses, which does not give us
enough information to track and resolve problems with the client or clients.
Within the past 60 days, our /new-reg API endpoint received about 707
requests from the IP address (an IPv6 address).
We’ve found that in most cases, the client is an older version of kube-lego or
cert-manager. We’ve worked with Jetstack, the maintainer, to release an update
to each of those packages. If you are using either, we recommend upgrading to
the latest version of cert-manager.
We would like to help fix clients that send our API many requests that will
never complete successfully. It’s possible that in the future, we may need to
block these clients in order to protect our resources. By fixing or upgrading
your client, you can help avoid problems with your certificate renewals.
A list of clients is available here:

The client is not kube-lego or cert-manager, so I’d like to let the sender know that I use acmetool , and to try to understand if I should change client (as an upgrade doesn’t exists) or what else.
The email sender is a noreply, so I hope a post here can reach the right people.
