    All of a sudden I am getting a Internet Security Warning box pop up when I load Outlook Express. It contains these words:
    "The Server you are connected to is using a Certificate that could not be verified.
    The Certificate's CN name does not match the posted value.
    Do you want to continue using this Server?"

    Below this are two boxes indicate "Yes" or "No".

    I have XP Home, Internet Explorer Version 6.0 and the only thing I did today before this started happening was to try to get one of my email address in Outlook Express that was not getting through, to work. I tried working with the Authentication choices, but nothing improved it so I took it off line.

    I have rebooted, disconnected and reconnected my modem/router, to no avail.

    If this sounds addressable to anyone please advise. dde

    Sounds to me like the "Incoming mail server" and "Outgoing mail server" settings are wrong.

    The website of your ISP should give you the information that should be in those settings.
