Bad expiration date notification

Today, i have receive many mails to inform me “Your certificate (or certificates) for the names listed below will expire in 2 days”.
The expiration date indicated in the email does not correspond to the real expiration date.

Hi @Vinc

please read the link shared in the mail. There is your explanation.

Ok, but is it possible to fix this wrong date issue in the body of the email to have the right information immediately without having to click on the link?

There is no wrong date issue.

Please read

Indeed. I have read it : “If you’ve issued a new certificate that adds or removes a name relative to your old certificate, you will get expiration email about your old certificate. If you check the certificate currently running on your website, and it shows the correct date, no further action is needed.”.
However, I find this operation not practical or understandable for users.

It’s possible, that the other certificate is used with a second server.

It’s possible that the website has the wrong certificate.

Letsencrypt can’t know which certificate is used, may be webservers (or mail servers etc.) are hidden.
