User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.8.1b2) Gecko/20060821 BonEcho/2.0b2 (Debian-1.99+2.0b2+dfsg-1)
Build Identifier: Thunderbird version 1.5.0.7 (20060927)

The "Security error: domain name mismatch" dialog in thunderbird has the following sentence fragment "someone may be trying to intercept your communication with this web site". It's not a web site, it's a mail server. All dialogs of this form in Thunderbird refer to mail servers...

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Attempt to login to a server with a bad SSL certificate
