For the past few weeks, Evolution is giving me an error trying to fetch pop3 email from AT&T/Yahoo ( address)
SSL Certificate check for

Do you wish to accept?
Initially, I figured that AT&T/Yahoo had changed something, but after a bunch more searching, I'm not sure.

I've seen a number of posts regarding Evolution issues with nss. I do see a file with the name of the above fingerprint in ~/.camel_certs, dated about a month ago, although most of the other files in that directory are older. However, several posts I've seen seem to indicate that ~/.camel_certs is old and no longer used.

Other posts point to ~/.pki/nssdb - and particularly claim there should be an file (or symlink?) in it named However, creating a symlink there to /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/nss/ did not eliminate the error. More interestingly, doing an strace on evolution includes the line:
open("sql:/home/me/.pki/nssdb/", O_RDONLY) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)
I'd love to know whether I'm actually missing a file. Also, what is the "sql:" at the beginning of the pathname for?

I suppose I'll just end up accepting the cert, but I don't really want to do that without actally understanding why I'm getting the error now?

Evolution 3.2.2, Ubuntu 11.10

Thanks for any suggestions.
