Improve setup of SSL for emails

Tried to set up email acount nadia at edgeryders dot eu on thunderbird but got a funny e4rror message. Elf says it’s because something is not right about the ssl for email…

Certificate error?

What kind of error message? “Non-trustable certificate” error thing? That is not exactly an error here. It’s just not worth buying e-mail certificates except when being a public e-mail provider.

If you want to be really safe (admittedly, post-Snowden you should), you can compare the certificate fingerprint. I’ll look up the correct fingerprint on the server and tell you. Doing that is just as safe, crypto-wise, as buying a CA certificate.
