No, the issue is that the certificate has been issued to "localhost"
- Certificate info:
# The hostname in the certificate does NOT match 'pop.hartford-hwp.com'.
# valid since: Tue Nov 20 16:43:09 CET 2007
# expires at: Wed Nov 19 16:43:09 CET 2008
# fingerprint: 44:B3:8D:19:D1:83:C1:06:95:CB:22:69:73:CE:08:61
# Subject's DN: C=US,ST=NY,L=New York,O=Courier Mail Server,OU=Automatically-generated POP3 SSL key,CN=localhost,EMAIL=postmaster at example.com
# Issuer's DN: C=US,ST=NY,L=New York,O=Courier Mail Server,OU=Automatically-generated POP3 SSL key,CN=localhost,EMAIL=postmaster at example.com
So the error message issued by fetchmail is correct because the
certificate's common name should be "pop.hartford-hwp.com".
