actually, we go through the cert check functions, and where mutt would ask
the user 'what do you want to do now' we just put out that error and get
on with it.
the error message is a bit misleading, it doesn't mean the cert is invalid,
it means we couldn't verify it. that may happen cause we don't know the
signers key or somesuch. i'll have to check into this a bit harder, stare
down my openssl config and try to get some clue.
brian, do you have any insight into all this openssl and cert checking
