openssl is a nasty beast :)
do you have the 7.1 updates installed ? if not do install them. openssl

it's always a good idea to keep the system uptodate

that probably means you don't have any mail source configured. do you have
any pop3 mailbox configured ? if so did you check the button that says
'enable check for new mail' ? :)
