Not a pressing issue, to be sure, but just curious:

I am receiving a couple of error messages related to the security certificate associated with the "cheddar" domain specified in the subject line: it seems that the issuing authority is "cheddar" itself, and that my client (Thunderbird for OSX) finds this suspicious.

Is there a genuine problem here, or are my instincts (to ignore said "security threat" and happily continue to send mail) correct?

Thank you in advance,

Uncheck "use a safe connection" Jun 16, 2006

I've had this problem for a while recently since upgrading Thunderbird and finally found the solution.

However my Thunderbird (1.5.04 too) is in French and I'm using Windows so I can't be sure at all about how this is all called in an English OSX version.

In "Tools" / "Accounts parameters"
SMTP outgoing server (at the bottom of the white column at the left)

Choose the appropriate SMTP server on the right side of the window (you may possibly just have one) then "Modify..."

A popup appears - at the bottom is "Use a safe connection"
Tick "No" then OK to close the 2 windows.
