    Having wanted to set up iOS push email for a while, I have finally got my hands on a Mac. It's running MacOS 10.14 and the version of Server I can buy is 5.7.1

    The cPanel documentation states however that the process for generating the APN certificate using Server may not work for this latest version of MacOS.

    I'm guessing it says "may" because the note was added when the current version was in beta. Is there a final outcome on this?

    I googled and found another way to generate the APN certificate was to have a Apple Developer Account, which seems to come at quite some expense. Is there another option?

    Hello @lukekenny,

    We've since confirmed that you cannot create APNs certificates in macOS Server® 5.7.1 (required for the macOS® Mojave 10.14 operating system). Unfortunately, I'm not aware of any additional alternatives to generating the APN certificates at this time. I recommend requesting this feature in macOS Server 5.7.1 on Apple's feedback forum.

    We have an internal case open (DOC-11761) to update our documentation to reflect this information.

    Thank you.
