For my particular cert., everything is fine, except that the purpose is
<unknown>, which is clearly the problem. I guess I have to invoke the
http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?p=1981993 (hope that works
right: my post on 29/12/05 10:29pm GMT, not local PC time). But to
understand what's going on in that thread is not easy; if anyone can
explain why the built-in certificate authority 'UTN-USERFirst-Object'
can't be verified (and that is an issue that applies to all
Firefox/Thunderbird users, and which doesn't require following the above
thread), I'll be a lot closer to understanding my own issues.
Thanks for the feedback so far,
