Let's Encrypt Expiration notifications

Post by jlau »

Hello everyone,

I have configured Let's Encrypt on my efa-4.0.4 box.
It is working great, however I am getting email notifications every time crontab checks for certificate renewal, whether the certificate IS or IS NOT up for renewal.

Crontab checks for certificate renewal twice a day (noon and midnight), so I'm getting 2 emails per day saying :
Cert not yet due for renewal
(skipped) No renewals were attempted
Is there a way to change these notifications to only go out when the certificate has been deemed ready for renewal?


Thanks!

Let me think about this one...I'm not sure certbot itself can do this but may be able to suppress it in the cron job itself with a wrapper script.

Hello @shawniverson

These emails aren't coming from letsencrypt, they are being sent out directly from the efa box by the cronjob
"From: "(Cron Daemon)" <root@mydomain.com>"
Also double checked and confirmed on the message headers.

Thank you for looking into it!
