Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Set up an account with an SSL-enabled IMAP or POP3 server 2. The server should use a certificate with a mismatched domain name 3. Connect Actual Results: The warning is not removable, and must be viewed every time the mailnews client is started. Expected Results: This is by design, but there is no option to ignore the warning in the future. This should be allowed (with ample warning of the security risk) because in some cases it is inavoidable. In my case, I am using paid shared hosting. The mail server is for all clients on the server, but each client has his own mail.domain.name. I trust the authenticity of the connection, so I should be able to ignore it in the future. Also, it would be best to only forgo the warning in the future if the SAME mismatched domain is detected in the cert. (i.e. if the mismatched domain suddenly changes again--warn again, with the option of ignoring it for good until another change) Occures in 1.4 milestone MailNews and latest Thunderbird.
don't use SSL at all. There is no difference if you ignore this warning or if you don't use SSL *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 205677 ***
