Cannot reach Junkmail - invalid certificate


#1

Firefox and Internet Explorer no longer allow me to get into the Junkmail area in webmail (Squirrelmail).

Firefox says:

mailboxes.onemanz.com uses an invalid security certificate.

The certificate is only valid for the following names:
*.dreamhost.com, dreamhost.com

(Error code: ssl_error_bad_cert_domain)

IE says:

Content was blocked because it was not signed by a valid security certificate.

For more information, see “About Certificate Errors” in Internet Explorer Help.

Suggestions?

mailboxes.onemwnz.com is probably not what you meant to type. That’s a page that exposes a few settings for mail. Most, if not all, of which can also be set via the dreamhost panel.

webmail.onemanz.com is where you find squirrelmail.

If you visit either of these areas however and use https, you will get that bad certificate warning. Why? Because dreamhost points sub-domains with your domain name attached to a site where the security certificate was issued to the name dreamhost.com. You can safely bypass the error. To avoid the name mismatch error you can use webmail.dreamhost.com or mailboxes.dreamhost.com, however if use those addresses you must specify your full email address as the username.

Thanks!

Getting rid of the https did the trick. It does not take me into Junkmail like it used to do. It makes me long into the One Man’s Mailbox manager. But I can get to junkmail in there.

Just one more step.

But not sure what you mean by “is probably not what you meant to type.”

The error I get says:

mailboxes.onemanz.com uses an invalid security certificate. The certificate is only valid for the following names: *.dreamhost.com, dreamhost.com (Error code: ssl_error_bad_cert_domain)
