Bug on email with certificate expiration date


I just received an email from Let’s Encrypt with this message: “Your certificate (or certificates) for the names listed below will expire in 19 days (on 17 Dec 16 21:36 +0000). Please make sure to renew your certificate before then, or visitors to your website will encounter errors.”

Domain: twinable.com
My certificate will expire on Sunday, 19 February 2017. Have you a bug on your certification mailer?

Thank you

Back in September, when you first obtained a certificate for twintable.com you actually almost immediately then asked for another, separate, certificate for both twintable.com and www.twintable.com, which you have subsequently renewed. Probably you just didn’t realise you would need both the names, and once you realised you asked for another certificate, that’s fine.

The warning is about the first certificate, just for twintable.com, which most likely you are no longer using, and so it is fine to just ignore expiry warnings for this certificate. Let’s Encrypt can’t be entirely sure whether you need the certificate just for the one name, so that’s why you get warnings.


Ok, thank you very much for your reply!
