Welcome to the new AT&T Community
We've got a fresh look! Take the tour to see what's new.
The topic says it - starting a few weeks ago, every attempt to fetch pop3 mail gets me a popup with the following error:
SSL Certificate check for inbound.att.net:
Subject: CN=inbound.att.net,OU=att.net Mail,O="AT&T Services, Inc.",L=Southfield,ST=Michigan,C=US
Do you wish to accept?
I am retrieving mail just fine from a different email account on a different PC with similar settings (although with different email app).
In this case, I am using Evolution under Ubuntu Linux. Everything was working fine until a few weeks ago. I know I could just accept the certificate, but I would really love to understand what the problem actually is before I sweep it under the rug.
Thanks for any suggestions, preferably not pointing out I'm using "unsupported" software....
I have included a few links that will hopefully be of help.
If your still having trouble please feel free to send a private message to one of our ATTCustomer care specialists by using the following link. Please include your name, email address, phone number and the best time to be contacted. An ATT representative will reach out to you within 48 hours.
Thanks for the response, but netither of the links you provided were helpful. I have not changed password recently, and the problem is collecting my sbcglobal.net email via pop, not using att/yahoo to collect other email.
However, based on a bunch more searching, I am becoming more convinced that although AT&T/Yahoo might have made some recent change, the reason I am getting the error is likely due to a problem with the way Evolution is handling the SSL Certificates, and not with the certificate itself. I'll pursue that path a bit further before I use your link for sending a private message. One way or another, I'll post a follow-up when I have more information.
Yes a follow up post would be great, not only for myself but for many others that might encounter an issue like this as well.
Here we are 8 months later and I'm now having the same issue. Specifically, I've been using pop.att.yahoo.com for inbound on my Samsung Galaxy S (Verizon) cell. About a week or two ago I stopped getting my messages to the cell, although they are picked up by Outlook on the desktop. When I try changing it to inbound.att.net it says "cannot safely connect to server. org.bouncycastle.jce.exception . Could not validate certificate." ATT says SENDING is a "known issue" but my problem is receiving. Seems like it's been going on for quite a while...
Any ideas? Does ATT know about this? ( I just sent them a private note...)
