I would prefer not to get into the religious flame wars, but it's not 
true that I can't legally change the qmail software.  Hell, it was my 
applying a well known patch to qmail that got me the TLS support that 
now seems to be causing me problems :).  (maybe that's :( )

Yeah, uh, actually I have.  I'm not sure why the error message is that 
it couldn't find a client cert in the file, it certainly is there, but 
I'll look into that.  What's odd is that these messages are getting 
through and I haven't changed anything in my system at all.

Yes, that will be the next step.

Thanks for your help,
