10.3: Importing self-signed SSL certificates
Authored by: ignatzmous on Jan 29, '04 07:43:05PM

This was the only hint in this thread that worked for me. There is a typo in the instructions, however: it should be the imapd.der output file that you're importing with CertTool.

Thanks so much. I have now imported my Courier IMAP and my SMTP ssl tunnel certs and the dumb warnings are gone.

10.3: Importing self-signed SSL certificates

Don't take the warnings lightly. In most cases (where you aren't self-signing), they let you know that you could be in a man-in-the-middle attack. This is very serious so you should always investigate a warning. That said, if you are self-signing, you will know about it and can ignore until you get the X509 anchor set.
