LetsEncrypt SSL Certs

Just wondering if there are any plans to integrate LetsEncrypt SSL Certificates into VPOP3.

If this could be auto-generated by VPOP3 every 3 months (the requirement for LetsEncrypt) and auto-replace the old cert that would be great.

I'm not too familiar of how LetsEncrypt works on Windows, but on Linux this operation takes a couple of commands at most.

Would love to hear what you think!

One of the problems is that LetsEncrypt currently requires the web server making the request to be on the standard HTTP port 80 and HTTPS port 443. By default VPOP3 uses an alternative port so that it does not conflict with any other HTTP or HTTPS server on the same IP address.

So, we can't use LetsEncrypt without having VPOP3 use ports 80 and 443 which would preclude the use of any other web server on the same IP address. This would lead to lots of support issues...
