Starting March 28, 2022, all public S/MIME certificates will have a maximum validity period of 1,185 days. This change is to align with Apple policy updates and only applies to publicly trusted S/MIME certificates newly issued from CertCentral. Certificates issued before March 28 are not affected.

enhancement

We enhanced the functionality of the Domain management – Get domain control emails API endpoint. You can now use the domain name to retrieve the Domain Control Validation (DCV) email addresses (WHOIS-based and constructed) for any domain.

Previously, you had to have the domain ID to retrieve the DCV email addresses. However, for a domain to have an ID, you had to submit it for pre-validation.

Now, you can use either the domain name or the domain ID with the Domain management – Get domain control emails endpoint to retrieve the DCV email addresses (WHOIS-based and constructed) for a domain. See the Get domain emails endpoint.
