One of my email addresses isn’t encrypted (thanks to Gmail for telling me). I’m going to use letsencrypt to add encryption for http://trusktr.io. I feel like there might be a catch 22 in that trusktr.io doesn’t have encryption at all (the cert expired and I’m switching to letsencrypt ), yet I’d like to use firstname.lastname@example.org for registration. I have some questions:
- Would I use letsecnrypt certs with my mail ports as well as :443? Or would I manage mail encryption separately from what letsencrypt provides?
- If in the previous question we can use the same certs on email ports as with :443, can I register with my non-encrypted address then apply the certs to the mail ports, before receiving any sensitive emails from the letsencrypt registration process?
I know I can just use my gmail address which is encrypted, but I’m curious.
