With the current Thunderbird I can not connect to one of my IMAP servers that uses a self-signed cert. Virtually identical IMAP servers that use CA signed certs work
I was a bit out of date when I updated to 7.4 and was running Thunderbird 45.6.x and it worked.
When I connected from evolution (which I do not like) it worked.
When I connected with my laptop still running 45.6.x it works.
so – I rebuilt thunderbird 45.8.0 from 7.3 updates (newest that isn’t
5x.x.x series) and did an –oldpackage update with RPM and it works again.
When rebuilding the old thunderbird in mock I had to add the following:
Either the build system used by CentOS automatically includes that, or a build dependency use to pull that it but no longer does.
Anyway if anyone is having a similar problem, that’s a solution.
This is what I see in the mail server log when current CentOS
thunderbird tries to connect:
