I've run into "expired certificate" problems before with mail POP3 servers
and with computer-based webmail sites, though never yet with WAP-accessed
email servers. Solution had always been either to install a new certificate
or to accept the validity of a new certificate being proffered -- I'd try
to ask AOL's own internal Help area (accessed from a computer) for advice.
Or, see whether the experience of accessing AOL mail from the cell phone
may become more tolerable if done using Opera Mini, the version of Opera
browser that installs on many GSM handsets having at least a minimal J2ME
(Java 2 Mobile Edition) environment -- using the handset's own WAP browser
(Media Net is it called?) go to URL <http://www.operamini.com> and let the
system there detect the handset and install the version most appropriate to
it. You don't say which handset is involved, but give it a try, at worst
Opera will detect that there's no J2ME environment and will back out with
its regrets :-) .
