Bug#120289: kmail: repeatedly asks for confirmation on SSL key when using DNS name

Package: kmail
Version: 4:2.2.1-1.6
Severity: wishlist

I have a localhost connection via SSL.  When I had it connecting to "localhost"
it asked me again after every restart (of kmail) whether I wanted to accept the
SSL key.  When I changed it to "" that went away.

I believe that this is a bug.  I guess that it was done this way because of
DNS being easy to fake.  But once I have said yes to the key then that should
be it IMHO.
