Well, that doesn't apply here, as we currently need to specify a
specific certificate file that the server is checked against. So it is a
quite different situation from web browsers.

That having said, I would love to get that certificate from the server
and just have it be remembered, like mutt does. I have no clue how that
would be done though.
