Your link only offers the suggestion to edit clawsrc to make it stop
checking SSL certificates. I'm not sure that is a good idea.

In the meantime I have a partial solution. I had CM set to check all
three accounts every three minutes, which then generated a multitude of
annoying popups. CM never pops up the warnings if I use Get or 
Get All. So I turned off the automatic checking every three minutes and
just check mail manually when I want to see if I have mail. 

I don't understand why I got the warnings with the automatic checks but
never get the warnings with manual checks. 

Note that I started getting these popup warnings about two weeks ago. I
understand servers might be out of sync for a day or two, but gmail and
comcast, both huge players? For two weeks?

Something is not adding up here.
