Windows 7: Outlook 2010 - Internet Security Warning - Security Certificate cannot

Outlook 2010 - Internet Security Warning - Security Certificate cannot

Outlook 2010 Security warning upon opening Outlook:
Initial problem: Work email from home computer stopped sending (had been working fine), though I have no problem receiving email. (Note: Home email account continues to work fine.) Email host Support (Comcast) worked me through finding the right Outgoing port to change to, but ...
Now upon opening Outlook - "Internet Security Warning - Security Certificate cannot be verified" pops up. "Continue?" "Yes" works, but it has become a "nag window" every time I open Outlook.
This may not be a Windows 7 issue, but would appreciate any suggestions. /jd

This problem is caused when the POP3 address (email collection) doesn’t match the SSL certificate that is being used. try following steps to resolve the error:

Open Outlook > Click ‘Tools’ from the top menu > Select ‘account settings’ from the ‘tools’ menu > Highlight the email account you are having trouble with and press ‘Change’ > From the ‘Change e-mail account’ page click on ‘More settings’ >From the ‘Internet email settings’ page choose the ‘advanced’ tab >Un-tick the ‘This server requires authentication’ option > click ‘OK’, then ‘next’ then ‘Finish’
