I am running a very basic email server at my house and I'm trying to have sparkbooth send email through it. It worked for several days, but now, I am getting an error stating that the certificate has expired, or self-signed certificate.

Is there any way around this?

Thank you!

    Sparkbooth does not have certificates in it. Does your server have a
    security certificate and you are using a secure connection to the SMTP

    It has a self-signed certificate, that up until I turned the computer on this evening, wasn't an issue for Sparkbooth. I'm not sure what could have changed. The self-signed certificate that was on my server actually expired back in 2009! I created a new one after I started getting the errors in hopes that it would fix the "expired certificate" error, but now I get one about it being a self-signed certificate.

    Very odd...
