Every time I try and open my outlook account at home, it gives me the following error message:

"There is a problem with this website's security certificate.  The secruity certificate is not from a trusted certifying authority.  Outlook is unable to connect to the proxy server."

This is Error Code 8.

I have been trying to fix, but I can't seem to fix the issue.  It was working earlier when I was at work.

two possible fixes, either of which should work:
1. View and install the certificate locally on the browser that you are using to connect to the webpage.  Then also add your website to the trusted sites in the security settings of the browser.
or

2.  Get a real SSL cert that matched the website name that your connecting to.  So if you were connecting to http://server.home.com then you would need to get a SSL cert with that name.

How do I view and install the certificate? From memory, there was nowhere where I could install the certificate.  I also added the website to the trusted sites.
