View Full Version : Mac Mail.app & SSL connections.
03-13-2006, 11:52 AM
Hey guys, I'm connecting with Apples' Mail.app with an SSL connection and it always asks if the certificate is okay to use. It used to do the same with the cpanel but it gave me an option to trust it and now it doesn't ask me as expected.
Well, in Mail.app it doesn't ask if it can be trusted so it brings up a dialog box to manually accept it for the session. Not critical but it is annoying. Anyone find a way around this?

Let me clarify a few things. First off when it gave me the option to trust the certificate with when logged into my cpanel, that was through Safari. The domain name was my pointing to the actual server. box92.bluehost.com in my case so when I accepted the certificate, it matched the domain name and thus didn't complain any further since the certificate was for that exact domain name.
Inside Mail.app the mail server was pointed to "mail.dvessel.com". The certificate didn't match my mail server so it kept complaining. What I did to fix it was to point my mail server to "box92.bluehost.com" and now Mail.app shuts up. So yeah, it's fixed for now.
It would break if I get transferred to another box but the fix would be easy enough.
