I have just started to get this message when accessing my emails through MS Outlook 2007.

 

The server you are connected to is using a security certificate that cannot be verified.

 

When you accept the offer to continue using this server, everything works until the next time you use Office.

 

Any clues anyone?

 

I've gone surfing on the net without finding a solution I'm afraid.

 

I use Windows 7 Ultimate

MS Office 2007

and the offending account is a Hotmail account.

 

I do have several email addresses redirected to Outlook - they all work fine.

 

Any help would be appreciated!

The Hotmail security certificate has expired and thus the verification warning. The MS Outlook 2007 is configured to access the mail server using the encryption protocol connection.

Well, crazycat, firstly, thank you for taking the time to respond to my little problem. 

 

I did look at your profile, and I must say -with the utmost respect - how does anyone, who has anything to do with computers, actually get to the ripe old age of 99 without shooting themselves beforehand? I'm 75, and I am quite sure, that if the gun ownership laws in this country were not as strict as they are,  I would have topped myself years ago. However...back to the issue at hand.

 

I am aware of the problem, but, how do I fix it? I have been to a lot of web sites, following advice given that was thought to be the solution; but, alas, no joy. I let MS Office originally set up the the email accounts, and I don't recall ever being asked for certificate information. I might just delete the Hotmail account and let Office re-establish a new account. Seems like a solution. I guess I'll find out if it's the right one.
