How to import SSL POP3 Certificates
Authored by: nayr on Jun 22, '04 10:43:42AM

Uhhhh, no. That will save the server certificate for the server to the file, NOT the root CA cert. While this will give the appearance of actually working, technically it's incorrect. You shouldn't trust individual server certificates, especially if they are not self-signed.

In order to retrieve the root certificate, you would need to add -showcerts to the openssl command. This will actually put multiple certificates into the output file; you would then have to edit the file to extract the correct (root) cert.
