[Bug 1076501] Re: Dovecot SSL Configuration has changed


Upstream documentation located at

It looks like ssl_cert and ssl_key are used now instead of ssl_cert_file
and ssl_key_file.  This is fixed in the docs for 14.04, so I'll confirm
what is correct for 12.04 and 10.04, as all other versions have EOL'd.

  Dovecot SSL Configuration has changed

Status in Ubuntu Server Guide:
Status in “ubuntu-docs” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Page: https://help.ubuntu.com/12.04/serverguide/dovecot-server.html
  Dovecot SSL Configuration describes editing  /etc/dovecot/dovecot.conf for SSL.  

  To configure dovecot to use SSL, you can edit the file
  /etc/dovecot/dovecot.conf and amend following lines:

  ssl_cert_file = /etc/ssl/certs/ssl-cert-snakeoil.pem
  ssl_key_file = /etc/ssl/private/ssl-cert-snakeoil.key
  ssl_disable = no
  disable_plaintext_auth = no

  SSL is now in the file is now  /etc/dovecot/conf.d/10-ssl.conf
  dovecot-core 1:2.0.19-Oubun is the version installed on Server 12.04.1 LTS and this web document does not match.

  Sorry, I have not figured the work around.
