I've a postfix server which has multi domains and I want to have a specific cert per each. My server has only one IP.
I've found a solution with multi IP, but without I don't know how to do this.
- Server : Debian 9
- Postfix : 3.1.8

As far i know there is no working SNI in postfix . Yet. Docs ( http://www.postfix.org/TLS_README.html ) say that "There are no plans to implement SNI in the Postfix SMTP server.", though Victor mentioned in January that he wants to add SNI support to postfix 3.4 . Alternatives :
Also there is nothing wrong with having the same MX for all domains. MX hostname being your service domain or something. Also helo/ehlo name configured to the same/similar hostname . If its good for GoogleApps and other major email providers, then its good for us too.
If you are on Postfix >=3.4, consider the following steps below as adapted from this link:
Step 1: Comment out the top two lines and add the follow lines to /etc/postfix/main.cf: --- # smtpd_tls_cert_file = /etc/pki/dovecot/certs/dovecot.pem # smtpd_tls_key_file = /etc/pki/dovecot/private/dovecot.pem # provide the primary certificate for the server, to be used for outgoing connections (note the indentation) smtpd_tls_chain_files = /etc/letsencrypt/live/mail.yourprimarymailserverdomain.com/privkey.pem, /etc/letsencrypt/live/mail.yourprimarymailserverdomain.com/fullchain.pem # provide the map to be used when SNI support is enabled tls_server_sni_maps = hash:/etc/postfix/vmail_ssl.map --- Step 2: Create the file /etc/postfix/vmail_ssl.map with the following: --- # Compile with postmap -F hash:/etc/postfix/vmail_ssl.map when updating # One host per line mail.yourprimarymailserverdomain.com /etc/letsencrypt/live/mail.yourprimarymailserverdomain.com/privkey.pem /etc/letsencrypt/live/mail.yourprimarymailserverdomain.com/fullchain.pem mail.yoursecondarymailserverdomain.com /etc/letsencrypt/live/mail.yoursecondarymailserverdomain.com/privkey.pem /etc/letsencrypt/live/mail.yoursecondarymailserverdomain.com/fullchain.pem # add more domains with keys and certs as needed --- Step 3: Run postmap -F hash:/etc/postfix/vmail_ssl.map. Step 4: Run systemctl restart postfix. Step 5: Now test your domains' SSLs! For each of your domains, run the following command: openssl s_client -connect localhost:25 -servername mail.mydomainname.com -starttls smtp
Postfix version 3.4 now supports SNI and it's therefore available in Ubuntu 19.10, for example.
Also, there IS a good reason for wanting this - clients such as Outlook attempt autoconfiguration using a servername that matches the email domain name. If your mail account is at Gmail or another shared domain this is not a problem, but a personal domain hosted on a server (even a VPS) with multiple domains needs a solution like this
