Outlook Express Error on Security Certificate Verification

Asked By 1230 points N/A Posted on -

Hi,

I face difficulty while checking emails through Outlook. It opens indicating an error about the validity of certificate. It feels miserable to witness those error messages. It becomes a hunting hurdle when I am in urgency of reading or replying an email. My P at home shows these errors to me.

   

Outlook Express

 

The server you are connected to is using a security certificate that could not be verified.

A certificate chain processed, but terminated in a root certificate which is not trusted by the trust provider.

Do you want to continue using this server?

 

At my office, these problems never occur but when I access Outlook at home it shows these errors.

For the answerer’s help I better mention that I am using Windows XP with service Pack 3. Kindly help me resolve this validation issue. Are these certificates necessary to have? What if I don’t have them? What other way out is there?

Actually you can continue using the certificate by replying yes as the message box ask you “Do you want to continue using this server?” But the problem is, each time you log in into your Microsoft Outlook the message appears.

Same manners when you are browsing using your internet explorer right? Browsing using the Internet Explorer or even the Mozilla Firefox will give you the same error – not that exactly how the Microsoft Outlook delivers the error message, it was just like something invalid certificate or anything that is related to certificate. When browsing the internet uses your internet browser off course, you will receive the certificate related errors not in all site that you have visited or visiting.

Now, let’s get into the solution for this issue. Certificates are automatically downloading from the site you are visiting where the site is trusted by your computer. There are some sites that require you to download certificates from them for security reasons. If you have already visited the site before then at the moment you have downloaded (automatically by the browser) an old certificate, you will received a prompt or a warning message pertaining to an invalid certificate.

This is the cause of the issue. Your time settings are not set to the current or actual time.

Solution for the issue is set your date and time based on the actual time as well as your time zone. You may set your date and time with the clock displayed in your task tray, or opens your command line interface (cmd.exe) the type DATE on the command prompt to change the date and TIME to change time.
