For what purpose would this certificate be? There are code-signing
certs, web access certs, e-mail certs, and others. Often, one type of
cert can't be used for other purposes.

In general, you purchase a cert from a well-known Certification
Authority, like VeriSign or Thawte. Thawte also offers a free email
signing cert for personal use. See

My question was meant as a response to Diane's suggestion in the
6/21/07 thread entitled "Subject: Outlook2K7/Vista & Security
Certificates??" When I try to retrieve e-mails from imap.aol.com, I'm
getting an error message stating that the certificate can't be verified.
Apparently, the solution is to download a new certificate from aol. But I
don't know how to do this. Alot of people are having this problem.

You should have continued the same thread, then, not start a new one.

You're right. My intention was to do that, but I made an error in using
the software. But on the substance of my problem, how do I download a
certificate from AOL. I have visited the AOL numerous times, and can't
find a page that permits the downloading of a new certificate.

For those sites that I visit where a certificate is required, I've been
supplied with links to update them. However, Internet Explorer should come
with two America Online trusted root certification authority certificates.
In the recent past, Microsoft has published a trusted root certificate
update on the Windows Update website (i.e., it should be available for
installation through automatic update). I don't know if that update
contains new AOL certs or not, but if you haven't installed it, it's worth
doing so. My two AOL certs are valid until 2037.
