| I don't know if this is the proper newsgroup for this problem but it is

| the following security alert:
| Internet Security Warning!
| The server you are connected to is using a security certificate that could
| not be verified.
| A required certificate is not within its validity period when verifying
| against the current system clock or the timestamp in the original file.
| Do you want to continue using the server? Yes No
| Why would this suddenly start doing this? When I click yes, it goes ahead
| and downloads my e-mail messages and acts fine, but it makes me wonder if I
| am opening the door to something. Thank you in advance for your help.

Because it can't validate a SSL connection via a Security Certificate.

In the OE email account properties, have you examined the "Security" tab settings ?

Is it attached to a Security Certificate that has expired ?
