[Chrysler300] Security Warning





Thanks for all the replies to my original message. It confirmed to me that the problem is sourced here. Just for everyone's information, I am a retired senior systems analyst with 40 years of experience in every aspect of computers and computing.
 
Briefly, your replies confirmed to me that it is my e-mail client program that is not handling Yahoo's security certificate properly. BTW -- Yahoo is the only Internet server I've ever received this warning from. This has nothing whatsoever to do with a virus or malware. The messages go right through my anti-virus program, as they should. The warning states that the security certificate is valid, but was issued by a different entity than that for which the certificate covers. Symantic is the issuer, on behalf of Yahoo. Apparently Yahoo farmed the certificate handling out to a third party - Symantic - and that's the cause of the warning.
 
Most everyone these days sends and retrieves their e-mail as "Webmail" through their Internet browser. I do not. E-mail is transmitted and received on my system in a completely different form than Webmail -- it is SMTP/POP messages and requires a client program (not a browser) to handle messages. My client program is rather old, and apparently is not designed to handle third-party security certificates issuances.
 
Thanks to everyone who replied.

Mike

I run Kaspersky anti virus and I do not get any warnings for email from the list server.
What anti virus do you run on your computer?  I would be surprised if Yahoo was running anything by Sematic.
Semantic makes Norten anti virus in case that is what you have on your computer.
I am thinking this may be on your side not the server side.

Nearly every e-mail message I receive from the listserver gives me a "security certificate" warning. It is for Symantic Corporation, which I presume provides security services for Yahoo.com. It's annoying to have to dispense with the warning dialogue every time I even select a message from the listserver.
 
Is the rest of the group getting these warnings? It's getting annoying enough to make me want to disengage from the listserver...
