View certificate on client

Post by veinstix » 2020-03-04 08:05

What are some ways to see which certificate is live on the mail server? I've updated the SSL certificates in hmailserver and gave it a restart. Just switched from comodo to let's encrypt and want to be positive it's working properly before comodo fully expires.

I use...

For SSL ports:

openssl s_client -connect hostname:port -showcerts

For TLS (i.e. STARTTLS) ports:

openssl s_client -connect hostname:port -starttls smtp -showcerts
openssl s_client -connect hostname:port -starttls imap -showcerts
openssl s_client -connect hostname:port -starttls pop3 -showcerts

Review the protocol trace output and verify that the intermediate certificates are sent.
