A new SSL cert was installed on imap.eecs on Thursday night. This unfortunately required a new “chain” certificate as Entrust is moving to 2048 bit keys (current keys are 1024 bits). Normally the IMAP server should present this chain cert to the user’s mail client so that the process would be invisible to the end user. However, the chain cert was not installed on the server initially, so the server could not present the cert, and clients were getting a certificate validation error.
Around 2:30pm on Friday, the chain cert was properly installed on the server and after that most of clients began working again. At least one user is still experiencing issues with Windows Mobile and Xpressmail. [Read more…] about IMAP Certificate Validation Error
