    Server certificate?

    Does anyone know what this means?:

    I started getting that a couple times a day a few weeks ago. I keep choosing "no" because I'd rather be safe than sorry. The email seems to come through okay on the next send/receive so it's not stopping that. I looked at the details of the certificate and it had a valid period that ended about the time this started happening.

    Make sure you system date is correct. Otherwise it means that someone's SSL(https) certificate has expired.

    Yeah SSL cert.

    Which means they paid someone to confirm the site is secure. Doesn't mean its not secure, just means they didn't pay a silly fee.

    Need more information about what's happening.

    You say 'the email seems to be coming through okay', so it sounds like this SSL error is related to your email hosting provider?

    What's the domain on your email account (the stuff after @)?

    If this is related to email, reboot and re-load your email client. That *should* prompt it to display this error again, take screen shots of the certificate information (click view certificate, screen shot that).

    I've seen this kind if thing happen intermittently on larger hosting providers as it can take some time to propagate certificates to all machines on a cluster, however it shouldn't take more than a few hours. If the problem remains intermittent it may indicate a badly configured host at your provider.

    There are a few other more nasty possibilities, however it's best to go after the more likely causes first.

    Does this explain anything? I'm not sure about posting the details tab. There's a lot of info in that one.

    Well, it looks like AT&T didn't update their certificate on that server. Might be in a cluster, either way there's really not much you can do about it. You could contact AT&T customer service, however that would likely be a complete waste of time.

    You can likely get rid of this by disabling SSL/TLS in the inbound mail configuration of whatever email client you are using. Or just keep clicking No. Considering you are still getting email either your client is backing down to non SSL/TLS *or* it retries later and hits a server that is configured properly with a valid certificate.
