Description

9 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.0; en-GB; rv:1.9.1.2) Gecko/20090729 Firefox/3.5.2 (.NET CLR 3.5.30729)
Build Identifier: version 2.0.0.23 (20090812)

I have just started to use my hosting SMTP server to send email instead of my ISP's

I have the setting of SMTP as Port 25 and TLS (if available) with Username/Password ticked.

When Thunderbird connects to SMTP server to send an email it pops up a box asking to either view the cert or click OK. The reason for the prompt box is that the cert belongs to the hosting server and not my domain. ie smtp server address is mail.mydomain.com and the cert hosting server's cert belongs to server.hostingcompany.com

For example in Firefox if the SSL cert is different to what the domain is asking for you have a chance to view and accept the cert, Thunderbird does not so prompts you everytime to send an email

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Configure SMTP to be TLS (if available) and username/password auth
2. Send email
3. Prompt to view cert and click OK 
Actual Results:  
The email gets sent

Expected Results:  
Thunderbird to remember the cert and not prompt you everytime you send an email

I'm pretty sure we already have a bug describing that issue . I just can't find it at the present moment.

What happens when you set the name of the server in your Server Settings to be server.hostingcompany.com? From your description, it sounds like that would work.
