I'm currently testing turning on pop3s on some of my mail servers.
I've enabled it and tested it working correctly with the following
o. Mozilla 1.6 [Linux]
o. Thunderbird 0.8 [Windows XP]
o. Outlook Express 6 [Windows XP]
o. OpenSSL 0.9.7c [Linux]
With all of them, I can logon and download my mail without any problems.
My problems start when I try using evolution-1.45. When I try to pop
the mail down I get ....
SSL Certificate check for XXXX.XXXX.XXX:

OU=Certification Services Division, O=Thawte Consulting cc,
L=Cape Town, ST=Western Cape, C=ZA
Subject: CN=XXXX.XXXX.XXX, OU=ISP Operations, O=EsatBT, L=Dublin,
There's nothing wrong with the cert as far as I can see. I've verified
the fingerprint of the cert and it's matching what evolution is reporting.
I've actually tested this against two different pop3 servers (both with
different certs) and i'm seeing the same error being reported by evolution
in each case.
Has anyone ever seen something similiar with evolution? Or any idea how to fix
Once I get the error above, I can accept the cert and mail begins to download
the ssl connection, but i'd like to know why evolution is complaining about my
