Re: Certificate not trusted

If you have a look at the link provided by BenMcr - there's advice on how to export the Avast certificate so it can be imported into your mail program.

Re: Certificate not trusted

Sadly, my version of Avast does not seem to have the menu which the URL you give points to.

I have found the closest part of the menu system, but there is no facility for exporting a certificate.

The obvious expedient is to tell Thunderbird that the suspect certificate (which is indeed from Avast) is in fact OK:
that is, make it an exception.

Is this wise?

Re: Certificate not trusted

FWIW, I had endless problems with Avast a while ago, which I reported on this forum. All of the problems went away after I ditched Avast in favour of Avira.

Ditching Avast was an ordeal - it was insidious and needed a rummage around in the registry to fully release it's grip on the system, regular uninstall routines didn't cut it.

Not a single problem with Avira.
