TLS / Certbot on PMG 6

PMG's TLS support uses a self-signed TLS certificate. Is there a way to auto generate & update a Let's encrypt certificate?

Another option: We have a wildcard certificate for our domain, so I could use that if we'd get better results.

I am mostly concerned about TLS support for Postfix, but would also like to have the control panel encrypted.

Thanks for your help.
PMG v6 is based on Buster, does that eliminate the need for "stretch-backports" ?

Sorry - I am a complete Debian newbie -- I have been using Centos as long as I can remember, it's going to take some time before I get comfortable with the whole apt-get thing.
Yes, if you are on PMG 6 (Buster), you need to replace stretch with buster - no backports needed, just do not add this line into your sources list.
