[Users] Endless certificate warnings

I have two accounts set up in Claws Mail 3.9.3, one is gmail, the other
is a university account.  All 4 channels (two each of imap and smtp)
use ssl.  I'm running on Ubuntu 14.04.3.

I am inundated with SSL certificate warnings!  On average maybe 10
times a week I have to manually accept a certificate.

I have the required CA certificates- "GeoTrust Global CA", expires
2022, and "QuoVadis Root CA 2", expires 2031 - in /etc/ssl/certs but it
seems that either Claws Mail can't find them or can't use them or is
supposed to have its own copies which (again) it can neither find nor

I can find nothing in the preferences which seems relevant to this

Please can somebody give me a clue?
