Changing the contact email of a Let's Encrypt Authority X3 SSL certificate


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., so withholding your domain name here does not increase secrecy, but only makes it harder for us to provide help.

My domain is:

The email address that the SSL notifications are going to an employee who no longer works there. Is it possible to change that?



The email address is associated with the account, not specific certificates. Certbot has a command to update it:

certbot register --update-registration -m

(Despite using the register command, --update-registration makes it update the existing account, not register a new one.)

For other clients, you’d have to check the documentation, and some of them may not implement it.
