    In the past two days, I have been getting many pop-ups of a window saying:

    [attachment=88561:security warning.jpg]

    In this case, it is complaining about something involving gmail.

    I figure it must be the result of some Windows Update patch.

    Is anyone else being bugged by this?

    How can I turn off this intrusive check?

    Is it possible for us to see a screen capture of the "View Certificate" dialog window.

    To me this is more of an advisory check to alert you to a potential security problem with a remote provider whether it be gmail or other.

    My guess is you have your account (pop3/smtp) settings with gmail setup with an alias address instead of the one listed by the certificate.

    I do not have the dialogue up now. Next time it appears, I'll get a shot of it.

    I am not doing anything with email myself when it happens, but it could be Outlook fooling around in the background.

    Later,

    It does a lot of that. Look forward to hearing from you

    Also have a look at this Google/Gmail setup guide for Outlook 2007 and verify your settings are the same.

    For your info, I am running Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit on an HP laptop with 4 gb of RAM and 500 gb hard drive.

    Well, it seems the problem does have to do with Outlook. Another problem i have been having since "upgrading" (actually downgrading) to Windows 7 is that Outlook and Word blow up consistently. They can only run for several hours at a time, and then they freeze and splay characters all over the screen. I have to use program manager to terminate their process, and sometimes that doesn't even work, and I have to use WinPatrol to terminate the actual services.

    This time when it happened, I restarted Outlook 2007, and the certificate message came up again. I do have several gmail accounts defined in Outlook. below are the screen shots.

    [attachment=88562:certificate 1.jpg]
    [attachment=88563:certificate 2.jpg]
    [attachment=88564:certificate 3.jpg]

    Note that the last screen shot says "This certificate is okay." But they don't say okay for what. I think it is okay for depositing into an Icelandic volcano.

    This certificate annoyance is bad, but I would REALLY like to be able to get Microsoft's flagship programs, Outlook 2007 and Word 2007 to be able to run for more than a few hours at a time under Microsoft's own flagship operating system.
    Open Office is looking better and better as time passes. I think my only hope is that Office 2010 might (hope,hope, hope) be better. Right now, I think Microsoft needs to hire a boxcar load of hobo lunatics. Maybe they would be able to make some sense out of the monster software the Gates crew has sicced on mankind.

    Was your Windows 7 install an upgrade or clean install?

    Have you tried reinstalling Office? Is Office up-to-date with service packs and hot fixes?

    Seeing as you are using POP to access your gmail and not IMAP please see the link below.

    Part 3 of the google support article asks the user to do exactly this
