    I have a website that uses a wildcard cert to accept *
    It works fine on PCs, but when I use Safari 1.3.1 on the Mac (OS X 10.3.9) I get an error message saying it wont accept the root cert as valid. Like I said I don't get the error on a PC at all. I've tried it in a couple of browsers on the mac and it's different for each?!?
    Also, with my cert I ought to be able to do without a hitch. Mac's Mail application refuses to send at all when using ssl, and gives me the same can't validate root cert error when I get email via pop3 and ssl.

    I had a friend check it out and he said he thought it might be a port issue. When I goto, no problem. Again, on a PC no problem...
    Pretty frustrating to say the least. I use a laptop to do my work a lot and find myself on other peoples (or insecure) pipeline (cafe's, etc.) That means I'm sending my email log info plain text if I check my mail while out...

    Also, this only started to happen after our host upgraded cpanel last. They can't test for it (no Macs.)

    Anyone else have this problem?
