Outlook 2007 certificate issue


#1

Running Windows 7 64bit with Outlook 2007. Configured the POP mail per standard. When I open Outlook I get a certificate error and that it can’t verify the name. But it lets me continue to use it. The error specifically reads “The server you are connected to us using a security certificate that cannot be verified. The target principal name is incorrect.” I think the error is because the certificate is listed for Dreamhost.com and not my own domain name. Any help fixing this error would be greatly appreciated.

Outlook won’t let you “turn off” warnings like those for security purposes.

There is some information regarding mismatch errors in the wiki: http://wiki.dreamhost.com/Certificate_Domain_Mismatch_Error
