Question

IE 9 tells me that I do not have a trusted certificate

I have a Samsung galaxy II tablet that runs android 4.0.3.

Samsung model is gt-p5113

I am trying to get my email (hotmail) on my msn account. when I try, it gives the message no trusted certificate.

my wife took this thing with her to russia last june. I see more than 50 foreign certificates, but the galaxy/android/ie9/msn thing seems to want a verisign certificate. I see that I have a bunch of verisign certificates.

No idea how to make this work for msn hotmail and any other secure application.

Thanks for any advice.

Re: IE 9 tells me that I do not have a trusted certificate

Hi Dubina,

I'll openly admit that I'm confused as to what's going on here. You say that IE9 is telling you this, but you're using an Android tablet. Is IE9 referring to Internet Explorer 9? If so, how did you get that on your tablet.

My mistake

I saw MSN and thought I was back in IE9. I was not back in IE9.

Still the trusted certificate thing: I was in a chat session with a guy who said it might have something to do with a wrong date and time. I also read some stuff that had people writing code to make their own certificates. I am not up for that.

Anyway, I fixed the bad date/time settings and I haven't seen untrusted certificate problems since then.

Let's be honest here.

That web mail is run by which company?
Does that company have any issues with the Android OS or devices?

Think it through.

Yes, let's.

Fixing date and time? What has that got to do with the MSFT/Samsung war?

Good question. Now ask why you had to do that.

Shouldn't we be past issues like this?

Why I had to do that? Fix date and time?.

Probably because wife took tab to Europe and didn't reset date and time coming home. I surmise. Anyway, I inherited a mess that seemed quite unrelated to the date-time problem.

What are you getting at exactly?

What I getting at.

Isn't it time? Or rather should these devices not be suffering issues like this? Or maybe this question. Why didn't it pop up and tell you that the date/time is now correct rather than mislead you about a certificate?

The days of excuses are over. We've been at this for a few decades so why are folk accepting such defects?

Well, Bob....

I couldn't agree more.

But that's the nature of the beast; someone gets a good idea (or a bad idea) and then they execute it, but to some level of acceptable performance...well short of perfect. and all it costs us is a fair bit of the time remaining in our lives to sort out their rather inconsiderate work.
