    Hi guys,
    in this page: Be sure you're connecting to Hushmail
    there is the procedure for verifying if the connection to Hushmail website is secure or not.
    Well, the Thumbprint showed in my browser is not the same showed in the Hushmail's procedure!!! It's completely different!! :-(

    The guide say: "If the two values are not identical, do not continue using the Hushmail website".

    Does anyone know why? I can not really enter in the Hushmail site?? :-(

    Thanks to all,
    cheers,
    John.

    Hi John,

    The guide may be out of date (2010), or it may have something to do with the fact their certificate changes depending if traffic is currently routed direct to their servers or through their DDoS provider.

    On 11/25/2015 I'm seeing this value:

    I asked @hushmail to commment.

    I'm linking these discussions together since John is reporting a similar issue with Outlook.com - Security Alert Error

    @hushmail confirmed the screen shots on their site need to be updated, and they appreciate it being brought to their attention.

    :thanks:
