Security errors on secure connections

If your email client is using a secure conection (for POP3, SMTP, or IMAP) and you are receiving an error regarding the certificate, this is because the certificate host does not match the hostname you are connecting to or your system does not reckognize the certificate authority used.

Refer to the actual error to determine what is causing it, and make changes accordingly... i.e. if the hostnames don't match, such as you are connecting to mail.yourdomain.com, try changing the hostname you are using to the one on the certificate. Usually this will be something like svr5.sirkels.com rather than mail.yourdomain.com
