"Bug 1287 - kmail does not honor the "Forever" option when accepting ssl 

I found this bug, Bug 1287,. It started in 2012 and has been reopened, most 
recent comment #18, Kristopher, 8/28/2015. This looks similar to what I am 

I do not get pop-up dialogs about the certificate. My error message is a time 
out connection error..silently failing.

Google suggests kmail in kde 3.5.x had issues with retreiving mail with ssl. 
This has been fixed in KDE4's Kmail.
