SSL server certificate problem with ATT Yahoo DSL

  1. Default SSL server certificate problem with ATT Yahoo DSL

    A few days ago I started frequently receiving the following message on most
    downloads and uploads from the ATT Yahoo DSL POP server: "SSL Negotation
    Failed. Certificate error: unknown and unprovided root certificate. But
    ignoring this error because certificate is trusted. cause (-6992) or
    (-6994)." Most of the time, the download or upload takes place in spite of
    the error message but sometimes it does not take place.

    My take on this is that ATT Yahoo DSL's root certificate has probably
    expired.

    As is not uncommon with anyone's customer support, ATT Yahoo's customer
    support people are clueless. So far, all they have done is to send me a list
    of the SSL settings to check. There is nothing wrong at my end. I have been
    using SSL with ATT Yahoo for around two years after an inital hassle pver
    problems at their end tthat was well discussed in this newsgroup. In
    addition, I have been using SSL with another web mail service and have had
    no problems there in nearly four years.

    These problems began shortly after ATT Yahoo started a program to make SSL
    mandatory.

    Has anyone experienced similar problems with ATT Yahoo DSL? Any ideas?

    Click "Last SSL Info" in "Checking Mail" options,
    then click "Certificate Information Manager";
    expand ATT's "certificate chain."
