Default Kmail storage of TLS certificate

Hi All,

I've set up an IMAP account on Kmail and the first time I logged in it flagged
up that the SSL certificate offered by the server was not valid. I accepted
it and ticked to save it and not ask me again.

This seems to me has caused Kmail to never again check mail on that account
(it tries to, but never connects). My assumption (judging from other accounts
(on the same mail server) is that the certificate session expires, but it does
not start a new session because of some malfunction with the certificate and
the fact that I asked it to save it as accepted. Other accounts, bring up a
notification, I have to accept the certificate afresh and then they connect
normally.

Any idea how I can reset this certificate as far as Kmail is concerned? When
has it stored my clicking to save the acceptance of the certificate and how
can I reset this?

Maybe my alpha-test version of thunderbird is broken (it often is but I
don't see any replies from the kde regulars in this group. Hey! Wake up!

Back in the good old 3.x days I tried kmail and liked it a lot.

Then came the dark days of 4.x and I had to escape from kde before the last
bit of my sanity failed me.

I seem to recall a submenu in kmail that let me manipulate certificates, much
like mozilla, and now thunderbird. Is my memory failing me again? Maybe the
menu disappeared with 4.x?

You need a kde guru like Dale or Alan. Hey! Wake up and answer the question!

Dale gave up on Kmail a looooong time ago. I like the way Seamonkey
does mail so I sort of stuck with it, although the upgrade form 1.x to
2.x was touchy.


I did read somewhere where someone else was having issues but I'm not
sure it is the same thing. It may have been on the kde mailing list
tho. Maybe someone can search the archives and see if they find
something? I'll try to search later but got some things to do plus it
is stormy here. No rain for a month so not complaining about mother
nature's tummy rumbling. lol

you can always dive into .kde/ and remove the offending lines from the config
files...

Thanks, that's what I'm trying to find out - which file and which lines. I've
had a poke around but couldn't find anything relevant.

I think that Walter is referring to Kleopatra. I couldn't find the mail
server certificate in there. This was the first place I looked. I also used
gpgsm -k just in case Kleopatra was being difficult, but nothing was shown in
there either.

OK, found it! The solution was to remove
.kde4/share/config/ksslcertificatemanager
