A couple of days ago, a user showed me a message she saw on her system about a security certificate issue. When I looked at the message, I realized it was due to the expiration of the Let's Encrypt certificate on the email server used by her system. I logged into that system and queried the server with the openssl command to check the expiration date. I saw it had expired that day, March 10.
