Security certificates

Well this has been annoying, so I will make a post as a reminder for myself.
When connecting to mailserver with outlook through SSL you might get an error saying:
The server you are connected to is using a security certificare that could not be verified. A certificate chain processed, but terminated in a root certificate which is not trusted by the trust provider. Do you want to continue using this server?
And then question, whether or not you want to install the certificate. And even if you install the certificate, nothing changes. Next time the same warning pops up.
This might be caused by several reasons, but mine was simple. Just make sure, that your POP3 server name is *exactly* the same as the server name the certificate is issued to. If in your configuration you type in IP, it will not work, because Outlook will think, that this is different server.

To install certificate on Outlook 2007 follow these steps
