10.3: Importing self-signed SSL certificates
Authored by: BraindeadMac on Oct 28, '03 07:37:44PM

See my above comment for more detail, but the "Common name" must match the server name, so you may need to recreate your self-signed certificate. Instead of entering "Your name" as instructed by openssl, enter your hostname (e.g., localhost)!

10.3: Importing self-signed SSL certificates
Authored by: logo on Mar 19, '04 03:49:23AM
This last comment has helped me to a solution to a half year struggle.
Last fall the certificate of my Mail-Provider expired. That started the popup for each of my four mail accounts!!!
The problem lasted until yesterday when I had a closer look at the message. The certificated was renewed (probably a couple of months ago) yet the registered server name had changed from to Changing the mail-Server's name in the account setups fixed the problem.

So in addition to the hint: the account's logical server name must match the certificate's server name!!!
