Certbot renew will renew the certificate files it is due for renewal, if it 
does, the renewed files are not copied to servercert.pem, for that you can run 
the following script.

Create a script /var/qmail/control/letsencrypt-qmail


qmailctl stop

systemctl stop dovecot


cat /etc/letsencrypt/live/<your_cert_dir>/{cert,chain,fullchain,privkey}.pem> 

chmod 640 /var/qmail/control/servercert.pem


chown vpopmail:vchkpw /var/qmail/control/servercert.pem

qmailctl restart

systemctl restart dovecot


schedule this to run after  cerbot renew
