When sending email Server Certificate chain bad.


When sending email Server Certificate chain bad.

Been using my email address for years and years.


Today when using Eudora to send email I get the following error:

"Certificate Error: Server Certificate chain bad!! But ignoring this error because Certificate is trusted Certificate bad: Destination Hose name does not match host name in certificate"


Please help

Re: When sending email Server Certificate chain bad.

Hello av8tor172,


Do you use AT&T's DSL Internet service? I'm not sure if your email issue would be related to AT&T or not, but have you tried to log in and send an email from the browser?


Thank you,

Re: When sending email Server Certificate chain bad.

First the problem only happens when trying to SEND email.  Receiving works fine.


I am not using AT&T's DSL.  I am using my local cable companies cable service which has worked fine for years.


I am using Eudora as my email program.
