Can I set this up using my Comcast email address?
I'm getting this message while trying to set up the Thunderbird account:
Add Security Exception
You are about to override how Thunderbird identifies this site.
Legitimate banks, stores, and other public sites will not ask you to do this.
Server Location: [Text Box] [Get Certificate button]
This site attempts to identify itself with invalid information.
Certificate belongs to a different site, which could indicate an identity theft.
Yes, you should be able to - I've never seen the error you mention myself, but some searching online shows updating the proper server/security
settings for your provider and adding a permanent exception in Thunderbird will get around this. I just searched on "thunderbird add security
Now, why Thunderbird would ID an issue with Comcast's certificate, I don't know, but I don't really have much a problem believing the certificate
is definitely valid (being Comcast and all) - here's one page I found discussing this and providing fixes if you want to try -
How do I resolve a 'Add Security
Take care - if you want to hang with Thunderbird for a bit, some research over at the Mozilla forums should help you get answers to pretty much any
questions or issues you might have...never been a problem on my end.
