Default "The certificate's CN Name does not match the passed value."

I have one more symptom to go along with the problem.

I am getting a message when Outlook starts up:

"The data file 'Archive Folders' was not closed properly. This file is
being checked for problems."

Could this have something to do with the CN certicate not being saved?

and how can I fix the data file problem?

Can anyone recommend a different microsoft newsgroup that might be more
appropriate for asking this question?

Recently my ISP sent out an email saying that I am supposed to change my
email settings
from to
from to

They also requested that I set up SSL on ports for pop and smtp. I did
that and found that I couldn't get outgoing mail to work. I was not even
able to get it to work when I switched back the smtp server to original
setting. In the process of trouble shooting I installed another email
client to see if it was Outlook that was causing the problem. When
Eudora opened it asked if I wanted to make it the default email program
and I said no. It didn't end up working with any of the settings that I
put it in. So I closed it and opened Outlook and then Outlook asked me if
I wanted it to be the default and I said yes. After that Outlook smtp
started working, EXCEPT that now it always opens a window when it is
going to send anything over the smtp that says:

"The server you are connected to is using a security certificate that
could not be verified.
The certificate's CN name does not match the passed value.
Do you want to continue using the server?"

And I say yes. But it doesn't remember the setting and I get the same
message about the CN name the next time I open Outlook.

One more thing: During the trouble shooting process, thinking that I had
a corrupted cerificate I did go into IE Options and in the Content tab I
selected "Clear SSL state". I can't remember whether I started getting
the CN name error message before or after I did that.

Anybody know what's going on here?
