Opera Mail - message box Security Issue

  • I am using Opera Mail (version 1.0.1044) 32-bit on Windows 8 since more than 2 years.
    Antivirus AVG

    Since a few weeks, each time when I open Opera Mail, I get message about Security Issue on the screen.
    I have 3 accounts to check: a company mail, a Yahoo Mail and a GMail. No security issue message for company mail, but for both Yahoo and GMail.
    Security Issue message box has 3 tabs (Warning, Security, Details).
    For all 3 tabs Approve, Reject, Help can be used.
    Under Security I have a few times ticked the V-box (Remember my choice for this certificate), hoping that it would store, but each time I open Opera Mail I receive the same Security Issue message.
    Security Certificate valid until 9/20/2018.

    Under Details I can go down to Security Certificates (like in a browser). While first ticking the "Remember my choice .." V-box, I have highlighted several of the options in the Server Certificate Chain (under Yahoo/GMail as well as underAVG).
    Maybe not the right one?

    Although it is not a serious problem, it is annoying that each time the Approve has to be given.
    Looking forward to any suggestions how to solve / where to look to solve this message issue.

    Thank you

  • You approved AVG's certificate? That should solve the issue.

    When a virus scanner scans secure email, it has to insert itself between the mail client and the host. This is commonly referred to as a "man in the middle" situation, and since AVG's certificate doesn't match the mail host's domain name Opera warns you about it. But you can tell Opera that AVG is okay, and then it should stop warning you (it hasn't warned me since. I do use a different anti-virus than you but it should be the same.)
