Are you sure everything is ok?
Authored by: acdha on Feb 25, '02 05:24:05PM
Did you make yourself a Certificate Authority certificate as well? This is necessary for a proper self-signed certificate...
Yes - the CA key is what I added to my store, as we use it to sign keys for a bunch of internal stuff we don't feel like paying Verisign to use.
Does the name defined in the certificate match the name by which you are contacting the server ?
Yes - I issued those servers certificates which match the CNAME they're accessed by. And yes, IE/OE are a pain in the ass to add the certificate to. (Even worse than Eudora, which just quietly gives up) When I get some spare time, I want to find where IE hides its certificates and write a little installer to add our certificates there.

Well I dunno what's going wrong with Mail.app in your case then, I've just got a stock standard 10.1.3 install on my laptop (hosed it by installing too much stuff from Darwin CVS... :( and from watching my logs, the SSL connection gets negotiated just fine...

My config is UW-imapd running under an stunnel on a 10.1.2 box btw. Most of my staff use Entourage, and it works better with an stunnel than it does with the native SSL support compiled into imapd. still haven't worked out why this is the case...
