SSL/TLS certificate not found/trusted by AVG when using thunderbird

When attempting to use Thunderbird I am getting the message that imap.virginmedia.com.com993 certificate status - this site attempts to identify itself with invalid information and for the certificate it says unknown ID certificate not trusted.  I am using AVG and when I switch off AVG I can receive and send.  I can obviously tick the various boxes to say treat this site as being ok as a one off exception but I am reluctant to do this until I know it is safe to do so. SO IS IT SAFE TO TREAT THIS AS A SINGLE EXCEPTION ?

Sounds like AVG is changing the certificate so it can scan the content. If that is the case it should be safe to accept it

There was a discussion about this last week, albeit with a different anti virus programme.  Reading it may be helpful in this situation:

AVAST and AVG are owned by the company!
