solution to sec_error_expired_certificate
Well this is a little help to those who can not get into hotmail or gmail.
I was using ubuntu 10.04 and entering firefox to check my mail in hotmail and what was my surprise q me appeared this:
The secure connection failed
login.live.com uses an invalid security certificate
The certificate is not valid until 05-06-2010 20.00.
(Error code: sec_error_expired_certificate)
Error Code: sec_error_expired_certificate
and a lot of text apparently was not sure the connection and could not see my emails. and then searching I found the answer and the truth is not anything special (as I could have this error !! lol) ...
This is a failure in one of the two sides of communication, one and mail server Hotmail or Gmail regarding the validity of the key for secure communication (SSL protocol).
The very simple solution:
The date of this PC is misconfigured.
Time zone must also be verified.
One only has to fix clearly the system date and ready and emails can be entered.
Hope they serve
