When Eudora try to downoad the mails, I get that error page on the
Eudora sreen.I get this problem maybe 50-60 times every day and I
don't know how I can solve this problem. Can you halp me prease?
But despite this error Eudora downloads the mail.
That's a good question. Normally if you have a bad certificate but it's
trusted (because you said to trust it, afaik the only reason it could be
trusted) and it says it's ignoring it, it really ignores it, and if that
message shows up, it's because another certificate below it isn't
trusted, and you wouldn't get your mail. But you do get your mail.
I would click on Certificate INfomration Manager, in the 3rd picture.
As wide as it is, it's still a button.
Then go to the top, click on the + signs (or use the right arrow on the
top line) until the whole tree has beeen dislosed, and I expect you will
see a skull and crossbones (instead of a smiley). Click on that, to
highlight it, then click on Add to Trusted. Then fetch your mail.
Normally the measure of whether you've finished is that you get your
mail, but you already get it. i wonder if somehow this will stop you
from getting it! Let us know. But if it does, go through the process
again and again, being sure to fetch mail inbetween each iteration,
until you can't open up that top line anymore and there are no more
skulls. Then you are done, and surely it will work.
But why it works now, I don't know.
The first picture is sort of worthless and it might even be better to
click on No instead of Yes. My own guess is that that applied when
computers were slower and there was time to click the Yes button before
it moved to the next step.
Except for gmail, new cetificates are issued every one or two years, so
this is not much trouble, but for gmail it's maybe 3 times a month, and
if that gets to be a problem, look into stunnel. Which is free and
