Eudora Error: Cert Chain not trusted
Posted by Laura Schindler, Last modified by Laura Schindler on 23 November 2009 02:43 PM
By default, Eudora does not like the type of SSL certificates we use on the MivaMerchant.Net servers. We use what is called a wild-card certificate issued to *.mivamerchant.net so it can work for any #hostname#.mivamerchant.net.

Here's how to add the certificate manually to make Eudora stop complaining:

Here's a newsgroup posting that claims there is a value you can put in the eudora.ini file to let it work with wildcard certificates but it doesn't make mention of what that setting is and Eudora's site does not seem to have it either:

Alternatively, you can also set Eudora to not try to use SSL when receiving. To do this, go to its "Checking Mail" preferences area and set the "Secure Sockets when Receiving" drop down box to Never.
