    Hello all,

    I have a very interesting mystery that needs solving. I have WHM configured with the hostname z.peruda.com. I do not have a "real" SSL certificate setup for peruda.com, however I do have a Thawte cert configured for the domain "secure.gati.info". When I go to connect to secure.gati.info via SSL POP3 (TCP/IP port 995), I get the [outlook express] error message: "Internet Security Warning. The server you are connected to is using a security certificate that could not be verified. A certificate chain processed, but terminated in a root certificate which is not trusted by the trust provider. Do you want to continue using this server? YES NO" The mail retrieval sucessfully completes upon clicking "Yes."

    While the SSL POP3 access is apparently working, of course my clients do not want to say any type of Internet Security Warning every time they check their mail! :eek: I think what must be happening is that it's using the "fake" certificate (a non-trusted cert that I generated myself) for www.peruda.com and not recognizing the valid Thawte cert for secure.gati.info. The Apache setup works great - go to https://secure.gati.info and you'll see a valid cert.

    I have tried playing with various *.pem files, stunnel config, and ipop3s config to no avail.

    Does anyone have any ideas on this? Thanks in advance!!!
