Anyone know if there was a change in Apple's mail servers in the past week or two? Reason I ask is all of a sudden every single legacy machine I have or service running 10.4 Tiger and that connects to an iCloud account is suddenly getting the annoying little morsel attached to this post. I've had it pop up intermittently on Leopard Mail on my G5 too, but that's only been like two or three times, instead of at every single login/reboot like on Tiger.

Not really familiar with certificates and the like. Any ideas on how to fix that? It's not an expired certificate, I had a look and it doesn't expire till February 4, 2014.

Maybe try flushing the dns cache and then restarting? http://www.hongkiat....ac-osx-leopard/

Might have added some kind of cloudy proxy distributer that runs on another IP than was the main one before the change?

Hmm! Good call. Flushed the DNS cache on my PowerBook, rebooted, and voila, no SSL message when I fired up Mail. I believe that may be it. Have to give it a try on the other machines when I have access to them again on Monday.

Thanks Hansi.

EDIT: Spoke too soon, started right back up again. This is odd.

One other thing you might try is do view cert and copy it to the desktop and then add it manually to the Keychain. I seem to recall that being needed at one point with an old IMAP account I had. Unfortunately don't remember how it's done step by step.

Well, still nothing on this front. Tried adding the certificates manually and setting them to "Always Trust" but the system just ignores them.

The hunt on Google continues.

Happened across this thread again while looking for something else. Incase anyone ever comes across this in a search, apparently I could never solve the issue because it apparently was on Apple's end. The security issue had cleared itself up simultaneously on all machines sometime during Spring 2013.
