      internet security warning problem

      When I connect to my sky server I get the following warning box. Also when I try to connect to the sky portal address it gets blocked.

      Internet security warning
      The server you are connected to is using a security certificate that could not be verified etc etc

      Is this a sky problem or is it me
      Regards
      Johnnie

      Email? If so it's due to how the google mail system runs and isn't an issue to worry about.
      What address is being blocked and what error do you get?

      Thank you for replying
      I use outlook express and when I connect to receive or send from my sky addy I get the message as described in my first post
      I get the option to carry on yes or no (this has just started on Tuesday)
      Also when I go to internet explorer to the sky page that is my sky
      I also get the same message and it will not connect until I select yes or no.
      the same happens even when firewall and anti virus are disconnected
      Never had this before
      regards Johnnie

      Check the date and time on your PC are correct. These being wrong can cause strange problems.

      The cert issus is due to the googlemail process when it comes to outlook, outlook express etc but should not be happening on the web interface. Check your security settings are on defaults (medium/ medium high) and restore the advanced tab to default settings.

      No problem. Go to the Internet Time tab of your Date/Time settings and check that it is set to synchronize with a server. I use ntp.cs.strath.ac.uk
