When I "Get Mail" more than one time during a Claws Mail session I only
see the expired certificate prompt once. As long as Claws in running
there is no further prompting. Now if I exit and restart, then I will be
prompted to Accept the expired certificate on the first "Get Mail". One
would think it would work the same with "Automatic checking". 

I just tested this, I see the same behavior with "Automatic checking".
No additional prompts about expired certificates.
