Cheers Remko and Ralph. I think there was some mention in the lets encrypt FAQ 
that certbot doesn't do email.

But I understand I can use their generated very for dovecot, postfix and https? 
That would be good indeed.

Anyone know of any manual, or can I just replace the certs in the dovecot and 
postfix locations with theirs? Do dovecot, postfix and apache all support .pem
