    I'm using Outlook and an imap account for my main email on my desktop. All of a sudden for the last week or so, when I try and send email I get the pop up warning "The server you are connected to is using a security certificate that cannot be verified. The target principal name is not correct. Do you want to continue to use this server?"

    So every day when I try to send the first email I have to verify the certificate, then it is fine until the next time I power up the desktop and have to go through the verify process again.

    I have not changed anything on the PC. No new programs installed etc.

    Someone can correct me but I think this may be your providers issue. Not sure if you can do anything about this.
     
    Maybe later this year!

    Yeah, that happens sometimes when companies mess with their configurations. Synchrony, which I have my Amazon account with, had an issue when they switched domains, and it was showing up as unverified.

    I wouldn't completely ignore it, but it's probably a configuration issue. However, I would absolutely call in and report it. As I always like to say, one call won't make a difference, but a couple dozen will. It's why I'm always vocal about stuff that probably isn't limited to me. Just last week I had an issue with the water in my condo; I called down, not to "complain", but just to let them know. A day later I was told that about 20 people were having the same issue and they were escalating the hell out of it.

    It's them, not you. Who's the email provider?

    Going to show my age. It's Prodigy, via Yahoo, which is now via AT&T. I swear AT&T must be the worst run, most arrogant company in the USA.

    I don’t know if you’ll have any luck, but you might want to email them and send the certificate pop up picture. It’s worth a shot!

    Usually something like that will resolve itself within a few hours.

    It might take a little longer in this case because there may not be anybody there who knows how to fix it.
