Description User image David :Bienvenu 2012-04-16 14:22:27 PDT
My isp has a domain name mismatch on certs, which causes a cert exception during account creation. Even if I override the exception, the account is created with the wrong user name (my usernames are the full e-mail addresses; autoconfig guesses that it's just the left size of the e-mail address). So I end up with an account created that doesn't work. This worked fine in 3.1 BenB was suggesting that this might have been an intentional change, but I suspect that's because I didn't describe the bug sufficiently well :-)

Yeah, I'm not sure.

verifyConfig.js should try both variants, so your case should work.

I should say I don't think bug has anything to do with cert exceptions, just username probing in general.
