Question thunderbird outlook exception ssl certificate issue?

Hi all,

Since a day or two I have been getting a popup whenever I open Thunderbird, I have been canceling until now because I had not time to look into it.
I attached the screenshot, but it comes down to overriding a certificate. Now I have tried to validate the cert via
openssl s_client -connect <server>:443
and I have gone to digicert website, I used every name I could think of, also IP address. But in NO instance I got anything that matched to the certificate that is trying to install... So, what's the deal? Is there some way I could get more info, or do I just have a virus/trojan/whatever problem here or did M$ fuck up somehow?

I don't use, but I'd read that as a problem with the certificate.
Did you look at it to see what's actually wrong?

I'd check with Microsoft support after confirming that your setup is consistent with their instructions.

(and please edit your post...MS may have messed up)

Thumbs up SOLVED

Thanks scasey for your reply.

It was a M$ f*ckup, the problem went away by itself... But, my alerts go off in bright red when my computer says I did things I did not do.
