10.3: Importing self-signed SSL certificates: Summary
Authored by: pheon2 on Jan 16, '06 07:33:17AM

This is a long and sometimes confusing thread. But it worked for me (Thanks).

To summarize my experience.

I run my own mail server and connect to it using SSL. On the server, I created my own self-signed certificate using the command

openssl req -new -x509 -nodes -out smtpd.pem -keyout smtpd.pem -days 3650

When openssl asked for 'Common Name', I entered the DNS name of my server.

When Mail.app complained, I clicked the question mark and followed the instructions. Which were

Option drag the certificate to the Desktop.
Double click on the certificate.
Put it in X509Anchors.

Now Mail.app does not complain when I check my mail.
