User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.6) Gecko/20050328 Firefox/1.0.2 (MOOX M2) Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.6) Gecko/20050328 Firefox/1.0.2 Accessing IMAP folders fails if SSL is enabled while a digital certificate is installed. If SSL is disabled, or the digital certificate is removed, things are fine. The following happens when both SSL is enabled and a digital certificate is installed: On launch, Thunderbird asks for the master password for the Software Security Device (SSD). If I enter the password for the SSD, then Thunderbird produces an alert ("Error establishing an encrypted connection to *****. Error Code: -12195.") and will fail to be able to make an SSL IMAP connection. If I do NOT enter a password for the SSD, and instead hit the Cancel button repeatedly, I will eventually be asked for the password for my IMAP server (once entered, it will remember, so this only happens once) and thereafter I can access my IMAP folders via SSL. This problem re-occurs each and every time Thunderbird is launched, so long as a digital cert is installed and SSL IMAP is enabled. The digital certificate password, email-account password, and SSD password are all different passwords. If the email-account password and SSD password are the same, yet a different error occurs. Specifically, my SSL IMAP server is Runbox (secure.runbox.com:993), and my digital certificate is the free email cert provided by Thawte (www.thawte.com). I am running Thunderbird 1.0.2 (20050328) on Windows XP Professional (Build 2600.xpsp_sp2.rtm.040803-2158 : Service Pack 2). I have not installed Mozilla to verify if it is a problem there as well. This problem is reproducable on a new account with Thunderbird. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Set up an IMAP account and enable SSL. 2. Install a digital certificate, and give yourself a SSD password if requested. 3. Close thunderbird, and re-launch the program. Problem occurs at this stage. Actual Results: The exact details are outlined above. Expected Results: The software should not require you to enter the password for the SSD to be able to make a SSL IMAP connection when a digital certificate is installed. When sending email over SMTP, a digital certificate can be installed and TLS/SSL can be enabled without any problem. The same should be true of SSL IMAP.

This is an automated message, with ID "auto-resolve01". This bug has had no comments for a long time. Statistically, we have found that bug reports that have not been confirmed by a second user after three months are highly unlikely to be the source of a fix to the code. While your input is very important to us, our resources are limited and so we are asking for your help in focussing our efforts. If you can still reproduce this problem in the latest version of the product (see below for how to obtain a copy) or, for feature requests, if it's not present in the latest version and you still believe we should implement it, please visit the URL of this bug (given at the top of this mail) and add a comment to that effect, giving more reproduction information if you have it. If it is not a problem any longer, you need take no action. If this bug is not changed in any way in the next two weeks, it will be automatically resolved. Thank you for your help in this matter.

The bug seems still to be there. When having installed a certificate for encrypting and signing mails (in my case thawte) this seems to interfere with server certificates and no ssl connection to an IMAP server is possible. http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?p=1714927#1714927 shows that this problem occurs for some people.

Thunderbird 1.5 apparently fixed this bug. I can now have a digital certificate installed and use SSL IMAP. Whomever fixed this, thank you very much.

There are other people wanting a digital certificate to be used to login to an imap server... But that is not what this particular bug entry was for (as I am the original bug reporter). This was a bug about the combination of digital cert + SSL IMAP resulting in failed IMAP connections. This is resolved; I can now connect to my SSL IMAP server with a digital certificate installed for signing/encrypting messages. BUG FIXED.
