An easier way?
Authored by: frickster on Nov 05, '07 03:29:47PM

I'm having the same problem with Dreamhost. I have multiple accounts with Dreamhost, and therefore multiple domains hosted there. I was able to get one account (my personal email) to accept the certificate, but since the other account uses the same certificate (both use *, Mail complains. I am able to force Mail to accept one, the other, but NOT both. If I get my personal account to work, then my business account complains; if I get my business account to work, then my personal account complains. It's really quite frustrating, because I can't seem to find a way to have two copies of the certificate -- one for each account -- and use them both.

I've tried putting the mail server in as, but they won't allow that to work. It fails. I'm not sure what to do, but it's REALLY annoying.

I've been having this problem since installing leopard now and I finally found a solution. The problem is the certificate's server name doesn't match the server address in mail. OS X 10.5 will (intentionally) never save a certificate when these two things don't match. More info is on my blog where i wrote a little guide to fixing this problem or go to and search for "verify certificate."
