    Just a few moments ago, my server started throwing errors fetching mail. To my knowledge nothing has changed on the server or on my local machine. However when I try to fetch mail off of this box I get the following error...


    SSL Negotiation Failed: Unknown Error Certificate bad: Destination host name does not match host name in certificate But ignoring this error because Certificate is trusted

    Error is being thrown by ALL email accounts on ALL domains on the server.

    Mail from all other servers is functioning correctly.

    A server reboot did nothing to resolve the issue

    Hello,

    Could you open a support ticket using the link in my signature so we can take a closer look at your system to see if any of your existing SSL certificates were recently modified or updated?

    Thank you.

    Michael I got it resolved. I was able to fetch mail using my android so I concluded that it was a client error on my local box. I use Eudora email client (I know) and simply had to re-trust the certificate.
