Remember my Settings


I guess this falls under the category of “no good deed goes unpunished”.
Since I’ve now gotten my mail server running with an SSL certificate I find that every time I restart Mail.app it wants to put up a dialog letting me know that
> _The certificate for this server is invalid._
Well, fortunately Mail.app lets me view the certificate and even provides a nice box to check if I **always** want to trust this certificate. This works great as long as Mail.app is open. Unfortunately the dialog pops up every time I have to restart Mail.app.
Does anyone know a solution?

    I’d love to find the elusive answer to this too. Ever since my upgrade to Leopard, I now have sporadic email access. Previously, on Tiger, you could just say “Continue” (anyway) and it would go through and not bother you until you reloaded Mail.app, but now in Leopard, I’ll sometimes get the “Cannot send message using the server….” because of the “The certificate for this server is invalid.” I’ve even imported the certificates into my Keychain and explicitly told the system to “Always Trust”, but somehow that just isn’t enough. Ugh. If I ever find an answer, I’ll let ya know 🙂

    I have a partial answer. You must put the exact domain name specified in the certificate in the fields for POP/IMAP/SMTP server.

    Now I don’t see this dialog on my laptop. Sorry for the vague answer but I really don’t know what I did, but I was trying lots of stuff.
