Me too. Identical error, trying to access our school's webmail.
NetSurf is very strict about verifying the authenticity of SSL
Is it possibly being a bit too strict??
If this check fails, it will give an error such as the one
above. You can disable certificate verification by changing the
ssl_verify_certificates option in the Choices file from 1 to 0. (Note that
this really, really, isn't advisable).
Will try this. But why is it not advisable? HTTPS will be used for the
communication, and no 3rd party is involved, so I don't see any security
problem. -Or have I missed something?
