We use OS X 10.4 and 10.5 email server (Cyrus, Postfix). Our OS X email servers sits in our LAN and uses fetchmail to pull emails from our Internet Email ISP. In our log files we see alot of these entries but could not find a way to prevent them.

If anyone has any suggestion please feel free to suggest.

Thanks.

You probably need to import the root CA certificate to the trusted root certificate store for your email server program.  Alternatively, you might look for a commercial CA that already support it - I'm not sure offhand who all has their roots in Postfix by default, but I digicert.com states that theirs is and they are pretty inexpensive and have one of the more recognized roots out in the market over time.

Hi thanks. Actually this is a quirk with OS X postfix/cyrus server - put ssoproto '' in the .fetchmailrc file will surpress the annoying warnings.

Cheers!

What I suggested was more in attempt for a fix, but the acceptance message gave insight for how to ignore the messages, so I will post that for posterity...
