since about 6 months I'm running my own mail server, which I access from different devices via IMAP, e.g. Thunderbird on PC and, who would have thought that, from my Pre.
I have my Mailserver SSL-protected with a certificate from CAcert, which worked very fine so far. I could access mails from each program, could write mails from everywhere and also could save drafts for editing them later.
If anyone is familiar with CAcert, he may know that certificates of them only last 6 months (that is, if you don't validate it via different ways). Well, at least my certificate expired some days ago, so I created a new one. Thunderbird is running still fine, after setting it up with the new certificate.
Now the problem is setting up my Pre. At the first 6 month ago, I send the certificate via another mail account to my Pre, opened it and I was done...that's what I remember.
Now I tried every way of doing that again, but it won't work. I copied it in different versions (.cer, .crt, .der) onto it via USB, sent it via mail, but the message (SSL-certificate error: the security certificate of the server is no trustworthy certificate....or something similar, as I'm using a german Pre ).
When I open a certificate with certificat manager, it shows me the pop-up, where I can choose details, trust and do not trust. Surely I choose to trust it. Shouldn't I see it listed in there afterwards? I'm really stuck and it would be great if anyone can help me on this problem fast, as I'm going to holiday on saturday and would like to be able to read my mails there
Thanks a lot in advance for your help!
