Could be, I don't recall whether I ever had to do this.  I certainly
haven't had to do it for quite some time.

I've read the page.  I have no ~/.sylpheed-2.0/certs directory at all.
I'm running Debian Sid:

$ aptitude search certificates
i   ca-certificates                 - Common CA Certificates PEM files

$ aptitude show ca-certificates
Package: ca-certificates
State: installed
Automatically installed: yes
Version: 20070303
Priority: optional
Section: misc
Maintainer: Fumitoshi UKAI <ukai at debian.or.jp>
Uncompressed Size: 573k
Depends: openssl, debconf (>= 0.5) | debconf-2.0
Description: Common CA Certificates PEM files
 It includes the followings PEM files of CA certificates 
 * spi-inc.org certificate 
 * db.debian.org certificate 
 * debconf.org certificate 
 * Mozilla builtin CA certificates 
 * CACert.org certificates 
 * Brazilian Government Certificate 
 * Signet CA certificates 
 * QuoVadis CA certificates 


I can't find anything on the system having to do with Thawte or Equifax.
