Auto SSL certificate expiry and hundreds of emails

Please fill out the fields below so we can help you better. Note: you must provide your domain name to get help. Domain names for issued certificates are all made public in Certificate Transparency logs (e.g. https://crt.sh/?q=example.com), so withholding your domain name here does not increase secrecy, but only makes it harder for us to provide help.

My domain is: fritzharmon.com and realestate.fritzharmon.com

My web server is (include version):

The operating system my web server runs on is (include version):

My hosting provider, if applicable, is: Hostinger

I am getting over a hundred emails a day saying that auto SSl certificate is expiring on June 22nd. These emails are not being generated from my current host. They are from an old host that I am no longer with and cannot access that cpanel anymore. This is what the emails look like: :no_entry: mail.fritzharmon.com (checked on Jun 11, 2019 at 4:27:57 AM UTC)

mail.fritzharmon.com” does not resolve to any IPv4 addresses on the internet.

:no_entry: cpanel.fritzharmon.com (checked on Jun 11, 2019 at 4:27:57 AM UTC)

The system failed to fetch the DCV (Domain Control Validation) file at “http://cpanel.fritzharmon.com/.well-known/acme-challenge/O_8P2FCZ56VSW0-XXXXXXXX-YP1OLI4H_” because of an error: The system failed to send an HTTP (Hypertext Transfer Protocol) “GET” request to “http://cpanel.fritzharmon.com/.well-known/acme-challenge/O_8P2FCZ56VSW0-XXXXXXXX-YP1OLI4H_” because of an error: Could not connect to ‘cpanel.hostinger.com:443’: Connection refused

How can I stop these emails? Thanks.

Hi,

Welcome to Let’s Encrypt community!

Since those emails are sent from your old hosting provider, it means that your hosting account aren’t being terminated correctly (probably only suspended, but not deleted) by your old host.
There’s nothing we could do to help you, you’ll need to reach out to your old hosting provider and ask them to either disable the AutoSSL for your hosting account (on cPanel) or to delete your account from their server (if you have data on that account, it’s going to be deleted and not reversible)

Thank you and good luck

P.S. your old hosting provider probably have a bad configuration for their exim… Hope they aren’t using an third party email service lol
