Why won't Mutt save my certificate?

Every time I check my email with Mutt, I get an SSL certificate message asking me to save a certificate for:


(a)lways, (o)nce, (r)eject

I type "a" for always and get a message that says "warning: could not save certificate". Then I have to type in my password again. Why won't Mutt save my certificate?

Mutt doesn't know where to save your certificate, unless you tell it. In your .muttrc file, add a line:


set certificate_file=~/.mutt-certs

This tells Mutt where to place saved certificates.
