My local certificates work with mutt and GMail, so I know I have valid ones.  What determines where sylpheed looks for SSL certificates?  Environment variable?  Something in sylpheedrc?

Thanks for the info.  I tried making a symlink from /etc/ssl/certs to the directory where my certificates are stored, but that didn't help.  This isn't a huge problem, and I have no time to troubleshoot, so I'll live with it until sylpheed 2.4.9 comes out.
