Certifificate change request (claws popup)
Claws version 3.15.1-dirty on Debian Linux buster/sid (testing)
POP account with defaults, and according to the posteo staff, correctly configured.
A couple of days ago, claws presented me with this popup (attachment). I verified the keys on the posteo homepage
To avoid confusion i should note that the dates in question are 2017-01-22 and 2018-01-22 (as in January 22nd).
A call back on the posteo staff turned out that they had no cert change recently, and the 2018-01-22 one is already in use since long.
I've no extra certs installed manually and i don't know why this is happening.
For whatever reason, it appears that the posteo.de server presented you with an old certificate.
Well, i exchanged several mails with them and they still insist that they really, really didn't.
What are my options to get behind this ?
There's nowhere to go with this. Claws Mail gets the certificate from the server. posteo say they didn't offer an old cert, so that's a stalemate.

I agree it's a stalemate.
I got the same issue todasy and asked the provider again about it.
A couple of weeks ago, i asked Posteo if some weird type of man-in-the-middle could be involved, but they can't imagine.
Do you think there could be something like this going on ?
But i'm ok with closing the bug (for now).
Your 2 latest screen shots don't show the same issue. They both look entirely expected - posteo have replaced the cert that expires on 22-Jan-18 with a new cert which expires on 22-Jan-19.
Ah, uh ... sorry, apparently my mistake.
At least now we know how it looks normally ... ;|
Anyway, provider's launched now a regular 'cert change' page on their site, probably for hypocrites like me ...
