I'm not admin, (although I am a moderator here) but you have correctly described the solution to G-Mail problems caused by not having the correct root certificate available in your section 2.2. Thank you for posting this solution in such detail.
Thanks Asign for posting the directions for this. I have had this same error message for the past week and it's been driving me crazy. However, I did the import differently as couldn't get it to work for me (or maybe it was just that I was doing something incorrectly) .
But in any case, this is how I did the Import: Go into the Account Properties of the email account which is generating the error. > Click on General Tab > Click on Edit Personal Certificates > Click on Certificate Tab > Click on Import and then import the certificate (equifax) file from where it saved itself. (For me this was in My Documents). > Now highlight the certificate and select the'view" tab and then select 'Add to trusted"
I have an problem with TheBat program. I use more gmail account with no problem before, yesterday i make an new gmail account and now can connect to this new account. SMTP conection works fine but pop3 dont connect. I use The Bat 5.0.12 version and all my account is set up in the past and now i restore when install the bat v 5.0.12 and then set up new account. I try to change the port to import certificate onthis new account and nothing works.
Have some solution for this?
I found the problem. TheBat put on POP server pop3.gmail.com and the corect setup is pop.gmail.com
I'm happy my post is useful until now (4 yrs later!) but unfortunatelly I'm not using TB ('The Bat!' or 'The Best!' mail client? That's the question! smile:)) now (maybe I'll use it again later) & can't help so detailed as before.
Maybe help you: - Read news in '2.1'. - To vary some in '2.2'. - Try Regina King's post (10.08.2009 07:02:18 #7).

ASign, thanks! Unfortunately Regina King's post does not quite work for me either. I even tried cleaning out all Equifax Certificate Authority certificates, then added them all back, added to trusted, but it still does not work.
I do successfully add the certificate to the list, add it to trusted, but I'm still seeing that "Unknown certificate" window each time TheBat connects. Since I have 4 gmail mailboxes, it becomes a little annoying..)
This fixed my recent problems = "TLS handshake failure. Invalid server certificate (The issuer of this certificate chain was not found)" with Gmail. However it's a little hard to tell where the GIAG2.crt file is on the https://pki.google.com/ page - it's under the title - "Google's Issuing CA certificate" - click on "Google Internet Authority G2"
Hi all, I am having same problem as all above (have been using TheBat for years): !27-Nov-17, 19:29:03: FETCH - TLS handshake failure. The server host name ("pop.gmail.com") does not match the certificate. What certificate exactly? Where to get it from? Where exactly to place it? How to install it?
Also, can you suggest correct setting for TB?Just would like to make sure.
