When attempting to connect a MAC OS 10.3 using IE 5.2.3 I get the error "The identity certificate is invalid". The webmail server I am attempting to connect to is a Windows 2003 Small Business Server. When I connect to the webmail server with a PC running 2000/XP I have no problem. Any ideas? TIA

Get rid of IE. If youre using OS X you should be using Safari or Mozilla.

The identity certificate is just a file that says "i actually am who i say i am" and you either dont have one, or it's expired. You should be given the option to renew it by the server though.

If the certificate has expired, Safari will give you a message to continue or not. That means if you know that's the site you want to browse to, you can get there...

So indeed, get rid of IE and use Safari - it's also faster than IE... and has more features

It's a G3 Mac with 128MB, not worth it!  Although it is a good web machine

Safari prompts you and lets you in. IE doesn't do any prompting (Both on 10.X and 9.X)

Ok, so it works on 1 machine. Since that's what the original question was about, close this one out, and open another one for IE on OS 9.
