If you have a web server then you must use g_ssl_lets_path to tell surgemail to create the file in the webserver path, it should be pointing at
So I have a single ubuntu server for mail and web. Port 80 is for web and port 7080 is for webmail. g_webmail_port is set to 7080 only.
All requests come to ericvey.com and I let the router do the work. There is no mail.ericvey.com, just ericvey.com. Let's encrypt certbot automagically set up the apache putting the certificate in /etc/letsencrypyt/live ... )you know the rest)
Right now, I am back to g_ssl_lets_path because when I remove it and set g_ssl_auto to "true" I get this error when I run tellmail ssl_update. I don't really need to update the certificate, nor do I need (or want) a second one.

It appears to be trying to pull a page from my public web server on port 80. It didn't create /home/httpd/html/.well-known/acme-challenge, so I did and give the user mail permission to write.
Am I doing something wrong here?
